One more idea: What about replacing "has" with "enjoys", i.e.
"KDE creates technology for a world in which everyone enjoys freedom and 
privacy and control over their digital life."

This could even be read two ways (at least by a non-native-English-
speaking German like me): Everyone enjoys freedom, etc. in itself. And, 
everyone enjoys using our technology while enjoying freedom, etc.
