KUFUNDA began as a dream almost 20 years ago when Maaianne Knuth, founder, returned from Denmark to Zimbabwe.
Her own experience of the wisdom and beauty of the Zimbabwean people, and especially those from rural places, led her to create KUFUNDA as a place of learning, where people could recover their sense of pride, diversity and capacity in working with their own knowledge to create a healthy and vibrant community.

EXPLORE THE CORNERSTONES OF KUFUNDA
Core to Kufunda's work is learning how to become stronger together.

IF I LISTEN VERY CAREFULLY,
I CAN HEAR HER BREATHING”
