Quality of Education

Working together to impact together

Making an impact on the lives around us is by far our biggest reward at Afrika Tikkun. We seek to serve and we serve to impact – this is our reason for being. By understanding the value of community, Afrika Tikkun also understands the importance of family. This is why we make it a priority to focus on developing, with care and attention, those in the Afrika Tikkun family whilst recognising the fundamentals of community upliftment. 85% of our Afrika Tikkun members are comprised of aspiring South African citizens from our focus communities. Our employees are not just employees, they are the brothers and sisters of our Afrika Tikkun Impact Movement, and together we resonate to one sound – the sound of empowerment. It is important to us to support our employees with state-of-the-art facility equipment, necessary industry skills and personal encouragement to bring about change in the social-care system, and sustainability of our NPC mission from the inside out.

Recognising the moral imperatives governing human affairs, men and women of goodwill can face up to the challenge of our time and make the caring society a reality. So it was from that idea that the word Tikkun was used to start an initiative that would harness the energies of those committed to building a new South Africa.
