Black communities, historically and in the modern age, continue to be of great benefit to humanity as a source of inspiration and invention.
We believe a world that is uninterested in the development of its black communities, as we move on into the future, will fail to benefit from the ingenuity hidden within such communities across the globe.
We are commiting to the unearthing of that ingenuity by investing in black communities and creating a system that allows others who are interested to do the same.
How Kwanda works

Access to the village is granted via a monthly pledge, of which the minimum is £1. This contribution is used to fund projects, and grants you voting rights and an equal voice amongst villagers.
