We aim to provide a holistic support structure to those we care for.
We provide primary health services and screening opportunities across all of our programmes and train our beneficiaries in preventative healthcare.
The Family Service focuses on counselling, disability support and parenting within our programmes.
The Helpdesk is a walk-in service that provides the community with information and guidance on applying for government grants, provides support to children with academic challenges, supports families affected by substance abuse and mental illness, and assists with finding employment for adults with disabilities.
The Disability Programme supports families who have a family member who is physically or intellectually impaired, is unemployed and living at home. This service also provides clients with information to access government grants and services, appropriate documentation including identity documents and birth certificates and assists with income generating opportunities. We also provide screening clinics and paediatric days for children with disabilities.
This project aims to strengthen the relationship between the child and parent or guardian. The project is in the form of a training programme that helps parents better understand the development of pre-school children. It focuses on health, communication and early literacy. It also gives insights into indications of children with special educational needs or possible disabilities.
Ikamva Labantu has a trained counsellor and social auxiliary worker who provides individual therapy sessions to our clients at their home or at one of our centres. These clients have been referred to us by our staff from other programmes and our Helpdesk. We also provide facilitated workshops in youth groups and senior centres, and coordinate a healing arts programme. All of these programmes have themes relevant to issues that township communities face.
The Community Relations Service provides a vital link between Ikamva Labantu, our beneficiaries and the broader community. We work with important stakeholders, such as community leadership, government departments, forums, ward councillors and other NGOs. Frequent engagement with these stakeholders enables us to understand community dynamics and needs. From there, we are able to respond accordingly and provide valued and appropriate services.
Ikamva labantu can only do the work we do because of your contributions.
Make a difference in the lives of those living in the most vulnerable communities.
