Helen Lieberman is the founder of Ikamva Labantu who gave 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. And what she encountered there – squalor, fear, poverty and desperation, as well as compassion, generosity and warmth – 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.
Ikamva Labantu (‘the future of our nation’) is a community-driven non-governmental, non-profit organisation that delivers many social support services to underdeveloped communities in Cape Town. These services include learning and development and primary healthcare programmes, as well as provision of resources and hands-on support required to meet the needs of our beneficiaries. We believe that every human being has the right to a dignified life. Thus, we are committed to creating positive and lasting social and economic change in township communities. Ikamva Labantu equips communities with the information, support and resources necessary for them to become self-sufficient and sustainable.
