Kufunda Village is a learning centre in Zimbabwe.
We are learning our way into what it takes to build healthy and vibrant community.
Our every day work is focused on learning and living creative and sustainable community. We seek to learn at Kufunda, and in relationship with communities in Zimbabwe – and to share what we learn through our programme platform. Our journey is one of exploring and seeking to live what we believe to be possible, perhaps even living the future today.
We are about people creating their own solutions. And about coming together, working with the diversity and wealth that we have, to create what we need. Core to our way of working is The Art of Hosting and Harvesting Meaningful Conversations. We believe that change begins with conscious and confident people, coming together in conversation to explore what matters most to them. Then healthy action can flow.
Through this journey we learnt about the art – and challenge – of creating a culture of learning, and the practices of coming together to foster innovation and creativity in community.
We have discovered many wonderful things sustainability and working with what we have. We have learnt about eco-building, permaculture, renewable energy, health and healing and much more.
Much of this has been learnt the hard way. With success and failure walking side by side, we have tested and tried our basic beliefs and assumptions, learning our way into what it means to be a learning community.
We have recommitted in 2013 to really live what we know to be possible at Kufunda today.
And to offering programmes to share that learning with Zimbabweans and beyond.
