UMTAPO is a social justice organisation whose mission is to
engage in education, training, community mobilisation,
and networking in order to empower people, particularly youth,
to take control of their own lives in the struggle for
sustainable development, peace, and human rights.

UMTAPO was established in 1986 in response to the rise of
internecine violence within the black community and the
resultant division and intolerance that reared its ugly head
and was soon to become a way of life
amongst the oppressed people of the country.
In 1987, UMTAPO opened its office in Durban.

With its slogan Free the Mind Free the Land,
UMTAPO embarked on an intensive education and
critical awareness-raising drive through youth
and women's leadership training programmes,
literacy and adult education, and information dissemination
using publications and public forums for critical discourse.
