The Shumeez Scott Foundation (SSF) was established in 2018, located in Cape Town (South Africa). We are a registered NPO Organisation complaint with a Section 18 A Exemption Certificate, focusing on individuals with Down Syndrome and Special Needs.

 

We motivate and assist these young adults to become self-sustaining and aim to provide opportunities for work empowerment and uplift their social life within the society.

The Shumeez Scott Foundation was founded by Ms Shumeez Scott, who at a young age seemed determined to make a difference in her own life and in the lives of others.

Being Down syndrome herself, her life’s motto has become the ethos of the foundation …’IF YOU CAN DREAM IT, YOU CAN DO IT”…

 

The SSF is situated in the heart of the local community.

We believe all young adults with special needs can embrace who they are, can define their future, and can change the world.
