Telspace Systems and AfrikaTikkun joined forces this year at the 2016 ITWeb Security Summit to raise awareness and inspire South African companies to sponsor deserving children in a career targeted education program.
Afrika Tikkun helps each child become a responsible, contributing adult through education. The organisation gets involved in the child’s life at the point of need, providing mentors, academic and career based education, and basic human necessities.
Their goal is to remove obstacles that would stop a child from reaching his or her full potential. Students receive proper food and clothing, and learn in a loving, safe environment. Each child’s situation and best interests are always considered. Sometimes that means placing the child, or even the family in a different living situation. Afrika Tikkun always works to keep families intact as much as possible.
Read some of their happy outcomes. Afrika Tikkun is a great way for companies to make a difference in the community.
So, you might be wondering what this has to do with ITWeb Security Summit 2016?

Recently the Telspace System Team, made this pledge:
For every ITWeb Security Summit 2016 attendee who wore a Telspace Systems t-shirt during the Summit, Telspace will give 35 Rand to Africa Tikkun to sponsor a child for a year.
We are proud to say, that’s exactly what we did.
Our goal by the end of the Summit was to have enough to sponsor a child for one year. To our delight(and our competitors displeasure), the attendees jumped in to support the effort. Attendees checked-in with the Telspace exhibit throughout the event to make sure shirts were being counted.

Thanks to a combined effort between the attendees and Telspace Staff, we are happy to announce we met our target and have successfully sponsored a child for a year.
Telspace Systems would like to take this time to thank the IT Web Security Summit 2016 attendees for their enthusiastic participation. It certainly feels good to know that we’ve helped change the trajectory of someone’s life for the better.
