Kommune Niederkaufungen Charity Profile

The commune was founded in late 1986. The 4-acre property (ca. 10,000 square metres) is located right in the heart of Niederkaufungen, one of the three villages that together form the borough of Kaufungen (population, ca.15, 000). The village has many old half-timbered houses in its centre, but in the last three decades it has seen the construction of many new housing estates, and the borough has developed into a suburb of the city of Kassel, to which it is linked with a tram line.

The main group of commune buildings in the Kirchweg were originally a large manor farm, with a complex of houses, workshops, stalls, sheds and stores. In the 1960s, the central agricultural building was converted into housing for foreign guest workers, a few of who were still here when the buildings were purchased. By modern standards, it was poor and spartan accommodation; badly insulated, single glazed windows, the workers packed in, two per room, with a washbasin in an alcove in the corner of each room. When the first communards arrived some parts could be used immediately, but others were in urgent need of renovation. Today a large part of the housing has been redeveloped in an environmentally friendly way, well insulated, with double-glazing, and using non-polluting and partly recycled materials.
