“I believe that every human being has the right to a dignified life.”
– Helen Lieberman –
It all began in 1963, during the Apartheid regime when a group of courageous activists responded to the unjust and inhumane conditions in South African townships. Out of these initiatives, Ikamva Labantu, meaning “future of the people”, was born. The organisation puts humanity first and always will. Together with the Ikamva Labantu community, you can pave a better future for all the families living in the Cape Town townships.
There is still so much pain, poverty and hunger all over the world and now more than ever, we are witnessing the great divide between those who have and those who have not. This absolute poverty is right on our doorsteps and cannot be ignored.
The Ikamva Labantu Endowment Fund acknowledges the Western Cape’s township community’s struggles but more so their courage and sacrifice as they come together to help one another to better the livelihoods of all. The launch of the fund is about securing your legacy as donors by ensuring that Ikamva Labantu can continue to build and sustain its community-led projects and services. The community does it all! Ikamva Labantu merely supports them and is honoured to be received and accepted by the people it serves.
Thanks to Ikamva Labantu’s donors and partners, people living in Cape Town townships are rewriting the story of their communities – one of positivity, resilience and strength. Founder and Honorary President, Helen Lieberman’s 80th Birthday event will celebrate a joyous occasion that affirms the communities, who are filled with immense pride and wonder at all that has been achieved together.
Join us on 27 June at 6:30 SAST for a virtual celebration in honour of our communities, their strength and their perseverance against unimaginable odds. Register here and enjoy electric entertainment by South Africans who are using their own powerful voices to unite a nation. We look forward to hearing the soulful sounds of Voice SA Finalist, Jeremy Olivier and South Africa’s most-loved all-female group, 3 Tons of Fun.
