“Ikageng Itireleng” means “help them help themselves” in Sotho; and that is exactly what Ikageng Itireleng AIDS Ministry is doing for more than 1,000 orphaned and vulnerable children. These children have experienced first-hand the true devastation of losing their parents and guardians to AIDS. By providing for all their basic needs, Ikageng relieves some of the pressure and despair faced by children who, having lost parents, are forced to take on adult roles.
Ikageng Itireleng’s community-based model of care builds a strong family unit and ultimately ensures that the children have a stable support system to help sustain them through difficult times.
Over the past few years, the ATG family has built a playground, sponsored Christmas parcels and donated time and ICT equipment to help the management team and children have access to the digital needs required.
