LIFSA promotes the care of vulnerable children and the empowerment of youth and women through support to civil society organisations in the townships of Gauteng.
Poverty and unemployment in South African townships have been amplified by the health crisis, which has also reduced the capacity of local associations to help the most vulnerable populations, especially children and girls.
