In 1963 Helen Lieberman and other courageous activists responded to the unjust and inhumane conditions of South African Apartheid by setting up survival initiatives in the Western Cape. Thirty years later in 1992, the coordination of these initiatives was formalised and Ikamva Labantu, meaning “future of the people” was launched as a non-governmental and non-profit organisation.
Ikamva Labantu equips communities with the information, support and resources necessary for them to become self-sufficient and sustainable. The NGO focuses in the areas of: Early Childhood Development; Child and Youth Enrichment; Seniors and Support Services in the areas of health, family and community relations.
FOUNDER AND HONORARY PRESIDENT
“I believe that every human being has the right to a dignified life.”
Helen Lieberman is the founder of Ikamva Labantu and gives her whole life to uplifting people in Cape Town’s township communities.
It all started in 1963 when South Africa was still suffering under the apartheid regime.
Helen, a young speech therapist, drove into Langa a township on the outskirts of Cape Town to find a young patient who had been prematurely discharged from the hospital. What she encountered there was squalor, fear, poverty, and desperation as well as compassion, generosity, and warmth. It changed her life. Working with the women she met in the townships, Helen went on to change the lives of hundreds of thousands of others mobilising individuals to better their communities. The insights she gained and the relationships she developed with community leaders on this and her many subsequent visits built the foundation that led to the formation of Ikamva Labantu.
FUTURE-PROOFING IKAMVA LABANTU
The Helen Lieberman Community Development Trust is established to support the future work of Ikamva Labantu and to honour the legacy of its decades’ long commitment to the community that it serves.
Sustaining funding to meet the long-term programmatic needs of the organisation is key to supporting the combined strength of community…
residents whom Ikamva Labantu supports. The Endowment Fund is a practical resource that can supply vital revenue in years when donations decrease or the organisational needs are growing.
Ikamva Labantu invites you to be part of this combined strength and help ensure that the organisation remains a trusted member of the community, providing the required resources to assist those who are selflessly dedicated to the lives of others.
