Mental Health Training and Self Care Advocacy Programme

World Kindness Day (WKD)

 It is a day that not only champions good deeds - no matter how big or small - but also inspires others to spread love and joy through Acts of Random Kindness (ARK).


End Period Poverty

Many young girls have missed school during their periods, due to the inability to afford sanitary napkins, an issue known as period poverty. Through this campaign, KIND has distributed over 300,000 Always sanitary napkins and will continue this initiative in 2023.   


Volunteering with KIND has been a great experience.
I have volunteered in a number of areas such as: clothing distribution to needy families, working with kids and helping with cleanup. 
KIND truly helps a lot of people, both children and parents. There is still much to be done, however, more people need to get involved; to donate; to volunteer, and to spread the word about what KIND is doing.



KIND has helped me in many ways over the past five (5) years. With their support, I am happy to say that I have been better equipped to send my children to  school. I have also seen an overall improvement in my personal development, in my children's behaviour and in their grades at school.


I've been a KIND client for three (3) years now and they have assisted me with many things, including hampers, school transportation for my kids, and helping me through some really challenging personal times with counselling. I have seen a positive change in myself and have made tremendous strides in reclaiming my independence. Thank you KIND for all you have done for me.



I chose to be a volunteer at KIND because I can make a difference for the less fortunate and give kids and families hope.
There is too much selfishness in society, and I want to do my part to make humanity a more positive one..
