Since 2009, 160 participants from 38 countries were trained at kanthari. This has already resulted in more than 125 social initiatives and organisations that are making a positive impact in the lives of thousands of people within their communities.
We see a world transformed by ethical visionaries and spiced with integrity, equality and empathy.
By providing tailored leadership training, we catalyse visionaries from the margins to realize sustainable social change.
Through intensive training, kanthari equips participants with all the techniques, methods and ideas they need to start up and run effective, relevant social projects all over the world.
kanthari is an accredited international institute that recognizes leadership in those individuals who come from and/or are positioned at the margins of society and have overcome major adversities in their lives. The intake is based on their talent, dreams and the major adversity (Pinching point) they have overcome. Our aim is to empower those “kantharis” who have gained strength from their adversities and, being a part of a target group similar to themselves, are intrinsically driven to create ethical social change.
We define five different types of social change makers and dedicate one color to each of them: kanthari Colors
