UMCEBO TRUST ZULU CULTURE Umcebo is an isiZulu word meaning “treasure”
The Umcebo Trust is a public benefit non-profit organization, which was registered on 22nd May 2003. The Trust aims to establish an inclusive studio workspace for people with special needs and other community members, to use and develop their artistic talents as a means of personal and creative development, as well as to generate income.
Umcebo is committed to the broader education and the development of skills for people with special needs, but also aims to include those who have various abilities – encouraging contact between all people no matter what their abilities. The idea is for participants to develop mutual understanding and awareness of each other in a mutual exchange of ideas and skills. Umcebo believes that personal empowerment and improved self-awareness is brought about through art, craft, creativity, learning and teaching. It is this collaboration that works towards inclusion of participants in the fullest sense. http://www.umcebotrust.co.za In South Africa
