Li is Cape Town born, and is married to Stan. They have three children and six grandchildren.
Li is a high school teacher by profession, but has spent the better part of her life involved in a range of Jewish communal organisations, as well as in the broader society, often assuming a leadership role, or as an executive member.
Her involvement with Afrika Tikkun began in about 2003, and has seen the Organisation grow from a grassroots organisation to a highly professional one.
Li brings her considerable experience to the Mensch board in her capacity as Chairman.
Afrika Tikkun has been in existence for 20 years and now runs six family centres, four in Gauteng and two in the Cape under the vision of providing a sustainable future for children in South African townships and thereby redressing the inequalities of apartheid.
The hands on day to day work of this mission is done by a dedicated professional staff. Li liaises with the staff and is one of the representatives of the Cape on the national Board.
The ‘Cradle to Career’ model of the organisation reflects Afrika Tikkun’s commitment to supporting children from infancy into adulthood and industrious employment to ensure that they become the next generation of well-rounded, productive South African citizens, realising their inherent potential. This is implemented through a combination of programmes that enables the education and development of a child from early childhood education support all the way through schooling to providing skills development for emerging adults tackling the job market.
Afrika Tikkun has emerged as a robust organisation which has had a significant footprint on child and youth development. In 2013, their services reached over 19,000 direct beneficiaries and 70,000 indirect beneficiaries.
