The Umunthu Programme uses the arts to catalyse reflection and discussion, providing a platform to address issues of stigma and discrimination through the lens of “Umunthu,” a Pan-African philosophical concept of humanity.



Where there is no Umunthu, people’s actions are informed by the question, “What’s in it for me,” as opposed to “What’s in it for us?”
