What are the objectives of your homeland developments?

The objectives are simple. Because the Kunapa families have cultural and traditional responsibilities to protect the land and ecosystem, we make every effort to preserve the natural environment in a number of ways. These are predominantly demonstrated through measures that reduce our carbon footprint, such as the development of biodiesel infrastructure and alternate housing.

Yes, you can! We assist families experiencing loss by contributing to the cost of a funeral service, especially those outside the Kunapa homelands. You will however, need to gain the Directors’ approval.
