The whole experience was unifying, uplifting, empowering and really engaging. [...] I couldn’t recommend the experience more!

Hannah Peake, Children's Services Manager, Barnado's

I attended a Katumba workshop with some colleagues. The whole experience was unifying, uplifting, empowering and really engaging. The excellent facilitators made the experience particularly positive as they were so welcoming, encouraging and supportive. I couldn’t recommend the experience more! In fact a few days later I sought them out at another event so my son could have a go too: he also loved it! Read Full Review
