lEADERSHIP FOR SUSTAINABLE COMMUNITY
An annual month long leadership immersion for young women, where younger women can come together in story, exploration, movement, and community to discover their value, their beauty and their strength.
It is a month of self-discovery, healing, celebration and deepening intention for their life. Through the programme, we invite them to step in as more choiceful, conscious co-creators of their future.
We hope that some of them will join us for our six month leadership journey later in the year. But for all of them we know that this month is life-changing.
YOUNG WOMEN ARE MEDICINE
A programme for young Zimbabweans ready to step into leadership.
Kufunda is inviting these young Zimbabweans for a six month programme of learning and exploration, where the participants identify and explore their dreams and their passion and are equipped to move towards these. This happens in the context of learning about sustainable community. For many who have been with us it has been a truly transformational journey.
THE OASIS GAME
THE ART OF HOSTING
The Art of Hosting is a participative training experience for all those who aspire to learn how to work with groups, committees, teams and communities in more interactive, engaging and effective ways: ways that nurture personal leadership, collective intelligence, shared learning and wise action fit for our time.
We run two Art of Hosting trainings a year together with a growing network of practitioners.
The Oasis Game, is an innovative community engagement process from Brazil, The challenge of the Oasis Game is to undertake a transformative action in a community, stimulating the participation of each individual in a community engagement and co-creation process around a shared dream that the community has. The purpose of the Oasis Game is to listen to the voices of the community expressing their dreams; and then invite the community to mobilise around one shared dream that can be made manifest in a short amount of time. The Oasis Game is a collaboration – between the community, the local authority and local corporates. It invites everyone to step into the initiative and take ownership of a community transformation.
We typically organise one Oasis Game a year that also serves as a training in the methodology.
Kufunda has been working in the field of community engagement and co-creation for over a decade. We offer strategic planning sessions for organisations interested in developing their own skill in engaging all its stakeholders in a more participatory and collaborative process.
