VISION AND MISSION
To build and to realise sustainable communities by promoting people's access to land, decent housing, and socioeconomic opportunities.
Umnotho For Empowerment is a Non Profit Organisation (NPO: 070-858) registered with the South African Department of Social Development. Umnotho is also registered with the South African Revenue Services (SARS) as a Public Benefit Organisation (PBO: 930037146).
Umnotho means Wealth and Economy. We believe communities can achieve empowerment by working together to build their own wealth. From 2009 Umnotho mobilised low-income households in Muldersdrift to develop their community.
Umnotho was founded by Leslie Gama, a community member who was frustrated by poor living conditions in the informal settlements.
