About The Komenda Project

The Komenda Project is focused on education and mentorship to create long-term change in underprivileged communities.

Our Vision is to empower and enable underprivileged children and youth to make sustainable change in their communities. We’ll do this by:

  • Introducing innovative educational, support and mentorship programs

  • Providing access to financial and training resources that will enable individuals to reach their full potential

  • Creating the foundation for our programming in Komenda and adapting the model based on the needs of other underprivileged communities

Our Unique Approach 

The Komenda Project is unique because the driving force is sustainability. We are not focused on the short term results, but focus on long term impact to pave the way for self sufficiency.  We strongly believe that a systems thinking approach is needed to solve social and economic issues, and we are here to make this happen.
