    Ikamva Labantu

    For the third year, the OUTsurance KFM Gun Run is proud to support Ikamva Labantu, a non profit organisation that helps build communities by connecting with leaders, teachers and guardians who are already committed to supporting and uplifting those around them. This is achieved through providing training, teaching and support. Ikamva Labantu works with seniors, orphans and vulnerable children, and in early childhood development and primary healthcare.

    Ikamva Labantu Our roots in Cape Town’s townships date back to 1963, when our Founder, Helen Lieberman, joined hands with community leaders to create change. With over 130 staff members working on the ground every day, we remain committed to our vision of creating sustainable social and economic change. Through the provision of training, support and resources, our goal is to empower individual changemakers and their communities to become self-sufficient.

    Child and Youth Enrichment

    Our Rainbow Centre in Gugulethu provides a space for schoolchildren from the surrounding community to stay safe and motivated during their school years. Equipped with classrooms, a library and computer room, the centre serves at-risk children and youth with individual development plans through a robust, daily afterschool programme.

    Orphans and Vulnerable Children

    We firmly believe that vulnerable children within the community should be taken care of by the community. We have established programmes including afterschool learning, and our child and youth enrichment programme within vulnerable communities to help those who need it most.

    Seniors

    Our senior citizens are the backbone of our community. Many have become the breadwinners in their households, taking up the role of parents to their grandchildren and supporting large families with their meagre monthly pension. Sadly, they are also often subject to abuse, neglect and isolation. After decades of working with our seniors, we have an established programme that promotes active ageing within their communities. We currently reach 2,000 seniors through club- and home-based models.

    Ikamva Labantu is dedicated to supporting those who are most vulnerable in South Africa’s severely deprived township communities. To find out more visit ikamva.org.za.
