The institute offers expertise on several fronts such as assessments of needs, feasibility studies and external evaluation for Development Projects. KKID was part of the international program NGO-IDEAs where the impact toolbox was designed and implemented. The results are still used in workshops and NGO project work.

In cooperation with international companies, exposure field visits to local project partners are conducted. International travel agents can stay with their guests on the campus and can experience different options of sustainable project work right there. Manuela Pastore, Head of the global Making More Health (MMH) initiative from Beohringer Ingelheim, sums it up:

Since 2014 we have launched together with KKID a huge number of programs in South India. These activities created added value for everyone: For the people in the villages as well as for our own international leaders within the company. The employees gain innovative insights which cannot be understood in our daily office life. We learn a lot – from each other and together with KKID.

The beautiful gardens embedded in the Nilgiri Mountains ensure a very pleasant climate and distance from a busy every-day-life.
