Our work at !Khwa ttu and with San across southern Africa
!Khwa ttu strives to restore dignity and cultural pride, navigating a practical path between the old ways and the new world.
We are committed to the dynamic preservation of indigenous knowledge and the development of skills to equip San to thrive in a rapidly changing southern Africa.
Our heritage restitution, conservation and responsible tourism practice creates a powerful learning experience for young San from across southern Africa.
By sharing our replicable example, expertise and information with visitors, and through forming partnerships, we leverage our impact locally and strengthen indigenous initiatives in remote communities across southern Africa.
