Our Vision

Our vision is for increasing numbers of people in the Eastern Cape to improve their quality of life through further developing the knowledge, skills, activities and networks necessary for healthy living.

Our Mission

Our mission is to promote better quality of life and sustainable healthy living through an integrated capacity-building programme in organic food production, nutrition and health, income generation and the cultivation and conservation of useful indigenous plants.

The mission is based on the following principles:

Pro poor, pro women, pro youth, adult education methodology and respect and dignity for all.

Our Aim

Our aim is to support people in improving their quality of life and their productivity by facilitating knowledge and skills acquisition of appropriate ways to make the best use of available resources. This includes environmentally-aware, culturally-aware, and labour-saving techniques to grow and use vegetables, medicinal and other useful indigenous plants for increased nutritional, health and livelihood security in homes, schools and wider communities. Umthathi also facilitates relationship building and linkages to appropriate institutions and sources of information.
