“We’re all here to make a dent in the Universe, else, why even be here?” - Steve Jobs.
These most riveting words by the late co-founder and CEO of Apple Inc are words I live my life by and truly believe in. It is for this reason that I partnered with Afrika Tikkun in my High School years ever since grade 8. In an attempt to better the world for everyone through their revolutionary Cradle to Career Model, Afrika Tikkun provides dedicated services in centres in Orange Farm, Dieplsoot, Alexandra Township and Uthando Centre which holistically develop individuals to be the best that they can be.
The Wheels of Love Crowdfunding Campaign resonates with Tikkun’s ability to deliver on the dreams of the future generations of South Africans. I have, over the years, spoken at Tikkun’s Centres to motivate and inspire the youth from a youth’s perspective and have seen first-hand the wonderful impact Tikkun’s infrastructure offers to the underprivileged in South Africa. This is why I love Afrika Tikkun and why I am raising funds to replace the old bakkie at the Alexandra Centre. The bakkie will enable the Alex Centre to deliver food parcels and heaps of happiness to the community in around Alex enabling each individual to reach their potential with Tikkun’s aid.
As an Ambassador for Afrika Tikkun and Chairman of the Afrika Tikkun Youth Council, I encourage every every active member of society in Suth Africa to play a part in reshaping the future of our nation with Tikkun’s most incredible team and initiatives!

Afrika Tikkun empowers communities to develop new generations of productive citizens using our unique Development Model. We achieve this through purpose built 'Centres of Excellence' within the townships providing social development services from cradle to career.
Our great Patron, Nelson Mandela has this to say about our organisation:
“Afrika Tikkun has proven that it has the ability to reach our disadvantaged population at a grassroots level. It provides both physical help, as well as hope and diginity to the recipients.”
The impact of the patronage of one of the world’s greatest heroes cannot be overstated and Afrika Tikkun is proud to have been counted as one of four organisations worldwide entitled to bear the Mandela name to the end.
