With the Archbishop’s moral authority grounding the Foundation’s mission, the team promotes constructive engagement with seemingly impossible, but not insurmountable, social and planetary problems.
Guided by the values of its Founders, the Foundation uses the Tutu’s rich archival heritage to promote learning, leadership and dialogue. This takes place through research and development, archival digitisation, museum design and curation and programmes and events to promote these values.The core of the Foundation’s work is The Courage to Heal, which is supported by three strategic pillars:
- Knowledge Legacy Programme
- Courageous Conversation Programme
- Healing Leadership Programme
The Foundation intends to grow its reach to a wide audience, ensuring that women and youth are of the highest priority, especially those from vulnerable communities.
Through its work the Foundation becomes an important resource for academics, faith-based organisations and school groups, and intends to create positive impact for marginalized communities, those struggling with mental health issues, poverty, loss and abuse.
Guided by its mission and values, the Foundation works towards creating hope and healing in homes and communities that need it most.
