Kounkuey Design Initiative


Kounkuey Design Initiative (KDI) is a design and community development organization working in the world’s most challenging environments. Using design as a catalyst, we partner with people living in extreme poverty to help them physically transform their communities, grow economic resilience, and build social capacity. We build networks of small-scale projects that together create solutions to large-scale problems. Through our designs, discourse, and advocacy, KDI is committed to defining and disseminating a proven model of community-driven poverty alleviation.
