Welcome to Skhumbuzo Foundation


The name Shkumbuzo is of Zulu origin and means “Remember”.

“The name Skhumbuzo describes a memory or a particular event that affected everyone in a family leading up to the person’s birth. The name may be a tribe to someone else’s memory who lived before the name bearer was born”.
