Our first day visiting Delft Township was an awesome and interesting experience. We pulled up in the vans with the music bumping. At first I was unsure if this was intrusive in their peaceful afternoon, but immediately we were overwhelmed with greetings from the staff at Afrika Tikkun. We played get-to-know-you games that I had never heard of and will probably never forget. Everyone we talked to was so welcoming and open, pretty much telling us anything we were curious about. They told us about many facets of the organization. Their goal is to empower communities so they are self-sustainable for future generations. One aspect I thought was really amazing was the food services they provided. The cooks made meals daily for many children as well as some adults that needed assistance. As part of this understanding, adults were also given the facility to learn necessary skills that would help them in getting a job or becoming a more self-sufficient. I thought this was amazing because it was completely free for those who needed it. The huge impact and communal nature of the Afrika Tikkun organization made me really appreciate those who had such a great heart to dedicate their life to helping others. After helping in the kitchens, going on to home-visits, experiencing the clinic, playing with the children, and many other things it made me really wish we could have spent wayyy more than a week in Delft because I had so much more to learn.
