Umthombo’s new CEO, Mpendulo Nyembe, started 2013 with a two day vision and strategy meeting in Durban, South Africa facilitated by Price Waterhouse Cooper. PWC’s assistance was part of a bursary that Umthombo won in an award for their work.
This meeting was significant as Mpendulo, a South African social worker by profession, took over the running of Umthombo midway through 2012 and takes the organisation into an exciting new era.
Although Umthombo will issue a new vision and strategy document it would appear that the psychosocial aspect of Umthombo’s work is set to play a central role.
This is exciting news!
