Welcome to the Kalahari Peoples Fund

The Kalahari Peoples Fund was founded in 1973 by members of the Harvard  Kalahari Research Group and has held 501(c)(3) status since 1978.  For  almost 40 years our organization has been composed of volunteer  professional anthropologists, development workers, linguists, educators and  other experts who have worked closely with these peoples and are familiar with their contemporary situations. 


Our organization provides responsible information and research on the Kalahari peoples for lawyers, students, volunteers and eco-travelers interested  in Southern Africa.  We also give talks and workshops at many national and international venues to inform academia and the public about the current state of the Kalahari peoples.

The Kalahari Peoples Fund, a 501(c)(3) organization, relies on donations from individuals, families, businesses, and foundations. Your on-going support means a great deal to KPF and even more to the communities it serves.

Get Involved

Our volunteers respond to requests by the San, Nama, Tyua and other indigenous Kalahari communities to advocate, advise, research and fundraising for emerging situations and much needed community projects.
