Ikamva Labantu

In 2011, Ikamva Labantu committed to develop a Health and Wellness Center and an Early Childhood Development Training and Resource Center that will support orphans and vulnerable children, early childhood education teachers, youth, and seniors. In these centers, Ikamva Labantu will advance a full range of issues, including children's health and early development, through experiential learning, teacher training, a parent center, and preventative health activities. These two centers will implement an interlinked approach to improve health and education for the township communities of Cape Town, South Africa.
