There's something about the place. It washes off a lot of dirt we carry within. Very serene, calm, and relaxing. The place is eco friendly and aesthetically well done

Such a beautiful place, designed by costford, the site is very interesting, with contours and the lake on the back. Many energy efficient technologies are used here, and the buildings are very user friendly, for the handicapped or blind.

About kanthari

kanthari is an accredited international leadership training centre for social change makers.
We offer a 7 month leadership program with hands-on practical workshops conducted by a group of international experts. Some participants have university degrees while others have little to no formal education. Some are blind or physically disabled; others have no disabilities at all. What is important is a sense of ownership, motivation, creativity, talent and passion to make the world a better place and that have the strength to be forces of good rather than victims of circumstance.
In the past 8 years, kanthari trained 160 participants from 38 countries. This has already resulted in more than 125 organisations/social ventures and projects that are reaching thousands of beneficiaries.

All around the campus you find posters about social programs that kanthari graduates have started. They offer insights about the problems they address and the social impact that is being created for a better tomorrow.
Proceeds of renting out the campus are used to maintain the kanthari campus as well as the kanthari training activities.
Help us create a better world and hold your events at kanthari!
Our campus is available from mid-December until the end of April each year or during specific weekend days during the rest of the year.
