Ifa Lethu, a Tshwane based nonprofit Foundation, was launched on November 19, 2005 with the support of the South African Ministry of Arts and Culture.
The original aim of the Foundation was to repatriate South African struggle era art and heritage back into the country. Since then Ifa Lethu has become recognised as the largest heritage repatriation organisation in South Africa. There are currently over 600 art works – paintings, drawings, sculptures, wood carvings, and prints - in the Ifa Lethu Heritage collection.
Over the past 10 years, Ifa Lethu has evolved to meet the changing needs of its communities, and is now one of the largest development organisations in South Africa. It plays a major active role of changing the lives of creative youth, indigenous crafters and in fostering the entrepreneurial spirit that is so unique to the country.
