Ikageng renders a variety of services to the very poor and destitute in Soweto, including vocational (computer) training, an emergency feeding program, medical assistance, and self-help groups. They have been quite successful and have a wide range of international supporters.
They have an open volunteer policy and do welcome spontaneous assistance by people en route, making them an ideal cause for charity travel.
