The Albinism Society of South Africa was established in 1992 and is the brainchild of the Executive Director, Mrs Nomasonto Mazibuko. The whole idea of establishing the organisation was to enhance the self esteem of people with albinism, enable and support parents to care properly for children with albinism, and create socially acceptable conditions for people with albinism. This is achieved by running a number of projects and programmes, as well as running a workshops and seminars.
The other aim of the society is collecting and disseminating information on albinism to communities around the country
Our vision as the Albinism Society of South Africa is to enhance the self esteem of persons with albinism.
Our mission is educate and provide user friendly information on albinism to the community, dispelling myths and misconceptions while alleviating trauma around albinism.
