Kounkuey Design Initiative is a non-profit design and community development organization. We collaborate with under-resourced communities to advance equity and activate the unrealized potential in neighborhoods and cities. We accomplish this mission through advocacy, research, planning, and built works. KDI believes participatory design and long-term investment are key to sustainable development. Working collaboratively with communities from conception through implementation, KDI enhances their ideas with technical knowledge and creativity, and connects them to extant resources.
