We often have some kind of workshop or programme happening at Kufunda. Find the up-coming ones below. We also do tailor made workshops, which can be held at our village or your own workplace or community. Please for more information.
Young Women Are Medicine
Module 1: July 7-14
All Africa Anthroposophic Training
August 27-Sept 3, 2019
Welcome to our two module immersion into the medicine of women. This is a programme where together we return to the grace, the power and the pride in what it means to be a woman today. Connected to the Women are Medicine retreat, this is a programme to make the most of the gifts and strengths of women in Zimbabwe today. Our core assumption is that women are not a 'problem to be solved', but a gift to be embraced, and so we navigate the territory of the many challenges facing young women today from a place of discovering and recovering the innate strength and capacity that resides in each one - to be able to return more equipped to face those challenges from a place of calm confidence.
The All African Anthroposophic Training is a five module anthroposophic training for the African continent.
It brings general teachings and development from Anthroposophy to participants from across Africa who have an interest in human development. More detailed workshop streams can be chosen by each participant where they wish to deepen their knowledge.
The training will include offerings in the following areas: Anthrophosophic medicine, biodynamic farming, child development, ethical business, and Waldorf education.
The training is enabled and supported by highly skilled leaders in each of these fields. Each year the All African Anthroposophic Training will take place in a different African country to support the development of a growing network of people committed to human and social development. The first AAAT took place in Kenya and this, the second one, is happening in Zimbabwe.

The Art of Hosting Peace and Reconciliation
A platform to practice how to host peace and healing
November 27-29, 2019
In Zimbabwe being in the community is an essential part of our social well- being and is strongly related to our history. We believe in the strength and energy that arises when we come together as people. But the challenges faced in our lives today often push us to unsustainable solutions for ourselves, our children and our environment. We lose the sense of working together, trying instead to use each other for personal benefits.
What would it take for us to come together in an appreciative participatory approach to uplift ourselves together as a community instead of just trying to uplift ourselves as individuals?
We invite people from all walks of life to come together and explore participatory practices that can support us to appreciate who and what we are.
