KunDe means health and well-being for all. Our aim is to help people reach these goals. As they depend on good nutrition, safe water, effective sanitation, sufficient income, quality education and health services, our activities include many of these.

Many people, particularly those in remote areas have less access to these benefits. We are willing to consider invitations to work together with communities, other organizations and departments so they have the information and resources they need to help people improve their own lives and those of their community.

KunDe staff and trustees have many decades of experience in cross cultural and development work around the globe. Currently most of our activities are in remote areas of Asia.
The Foundation supports a small office in the UK that provides support to the activities overseas.
