Kunsaka is a Bantu word for a place where people meet to reminisce, discuss common problems and share solutions. Kunsaka supports disadvantaged and socially excluded African elderly people in the London borough of Wandsworth. Many African elderly people in the borough need culturally appropriate services to address issues of discrimination, language barriers and lack of confidence. Kunsaka runs lunches, social clubs, inter-generational volunteering, dance classes, and other programmes to help elderly people engage and overcome any problems they are facing. Kunsaka is using funding from The Fore to hire its first paid member of staff, building the organisation’s capacity to take on more volunteers, enhance its services and expand its reach.
