By Dr. Jean Elphick General Manager: Afrika Tikkun Empowerment Programme

In 2010 Afrika Tikkun conducted a study in Orange Farm, Alexandra, and Diepsloot in Johannesburg as well as Mfuleni and Delft in Cape Town, South Africa to assess the needs of caregivers and families of children with disabilities. This report highlights the findings of that study, including the many complex problems and human rights violations they faced. In response, Afrika Tikkun began the Empowerment Programme. This report presents the results of the evaluation of that program.
