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.

OUR SCOPE OF WORK
EXPLORE THE CORNERSTONES OF KUFUNDA
Core to Kufunda's work is learning how to become stronger together.
We have worked for the past 18 years with rural communities using participatory approaches to help communities identify what they most care about and find the way to move towards this together.
We are dedicated to providing
learning that enables the development of the whole child, stimulating creativity and imagination while giving them a strong foundation in learning and knowledge for life.
As a learning centre and
eco-village, we have long been learning our way into what it takes to create healthy and vibrantcommunity and sharing this with our local
community, and communities around Zimbabwe. The relationship with the land is core to this.
“ANOTHER WORLD IS NOT ONLY POSSIBLE, SHE IS ON HER WAY. ON A QUIET DAY,
IF I LISTEN VERY CAREFULLY,
I CAN HEAR HER BREATHING”
