Raise It Up

Baltimore to South Africa

Umthombo is a voice from the streets. It is a unique South African organization led predominantly by former street children. Umthombo aims to change the way that society perceives and treats street children by educating the general public on the realities of life on the street for experienced by children and by developing and implementing informed, working strategies to address the issue in South African cities.

Umthombo believes that Durban is fast becoming the "Rio" of this decade, when it comes to the issue of street children. Umthombo is based in Durban and focuses on the eastern seaboard of South Africa. It also has offices in East London in the Eastern Cape.
