The Kalahari Peoples Fund, a 501(c)(3) organization, relies on donations from individuals, families, businesses, and foundations. Your ongoing support means a great deal to KPF, and even more to the communities we serve.
KPF accepts general contributions or donations earmarked for specific projects, which go directly to the communities in southern Africa, with no overhead withdrawn.
In recent years, we have sent more than $50,000 each year to the trusted sister organizations in southern Africa with whom we run projects in education and community development for the Kalahari region. Donations of any amount, large or small, will be greatly appreciated.
Individuals, foundations, and corporations interested in contributing to the Kalahari Peoples Fund by mail may reach us at the following address:

Ju/’hoan Folktales: Transcriptions and English Translations
This Ju|'hoan-language literacy primer has been produced by the Ju|'hoan Transcription Group, active since 2002 in Nyae Nyae, Namibia. The members of the Transcription Group, all Ju|'hoan men and women, transcribed and translated versions of Ju|'hoan folktales recorded in Botswana and Namibia between 1971 and 2006, to prepare the selections for the primer.
Meant as literacy study materials for youth and adults of the Ju|'hoan communities of both countries, the fourteen selected tales are arranged in order of increasing length and complexity. The tales are not compilations from various versions, but faithful renderings of specific recordings. They are accompanied by both literal, line-by-line English translations and short English synopses.
$20 plus shipping & handling ($23.50)
Thank you very much for your interest and support!
We would also like to thank our corporate and individual sponsors for making it possible for the Kalahari Peoples Fund to assist the communities in the Kalahari.
