“There is a crack, a crack in everything
That’s how the light gets in.”
Leonard Cohen

Kufunda is a small learning village in Zimbabwe learning our way into what it takes to build healthy and vibrant community. Our journey is one of exploring and seeking to live what we believe to be possible, perhaps even living the future today.

We care about people creating their own solutions. We care about working with the diversity and wealth that we have, to create what we need. We believe that change begins with conscious and confident people, coming together to explore what matters most to them. Then healthy action can flow.

I will share from our African village principles and experiences that I think are relevant regardless where in the world we find ourselves – and then invite the Global Change Days community into a dialogue of exploring the questions that have brought them to this global community and event.
