Community development is not possible unless women living in poverty are given a voice. KKF provides women tools to claim their entitlements, develop leadership, prevent exploitation and play active roles in their communities. The Foundation strengthens both rural and urban communities by building institutions to close gaps between communities and the local government. It increases access to information with a specific focus on reducing violence against women and children. KKF addresses the sustainable development goals of achieving gender equality and empowerment for all women and girls, and building effective and accountable institutions at all levels.
