Afrika Tikkun Sports Day
Afrika Tikkun is a non-profit organization which was founded in 1995 to provide for the day to day needs of disadvantaged children but soon after, the organisation evolved into one focused on overall development.
This organisation has 6 branches – Diepsloot, Orange Farm, Alexandra, Mfuleni, Braamfontein, and the Belron Training Center. Each of these centers is located in an underprivelaged community. Each center assists the community by providing nutrition to young children, children and young adults that are part of their programs; early childhood development centers; after school programs to children to improve their education; career guidance services; sports, recreation, arts and culture training and facilities and so much more.
Every year, Afrika Tikkun organises a sports day at the Bidvest Wanders Stadium in Johannesburg where the children and young adults involved in the various programs can have fun and demonstrate how hard they have worked through the year. This year, as usual, Spoor & Fisher’s staff were there to support the organisation and to join in the fun.
The day consisted of many events including athletics, dance competitions, poetry slams, debating competitions, speeches, football, netball and choir events. The talent and hard work of all the children was recognised. In addition, sponsors such as Spoor & Fisher were afforded the opportunity to interact with the children and participate in events such as foot races, tug of war, netball and football.
The Afrika Tikkun organisation is an immensely beneficial organisation which has impacted the lives of many children and young adults and which contributes to the success of these children, the upliftment of their families as well as their communities at large. Spoor & Fisher is proud to support this organisation.
