The Kuumba Institute at Ashé commits to always do as much as we can, in the way we can, in order to leave our communities more beautiful and beneficial than we inherited it. It is our goal to inspire students to use culture and the arts to help develop their power of expression and encourage the building of relationships within the community and throughout the world.
