Objectives

Be Kind Movement was established in 2015 with the aim of celebrating and amplifying the power of kindness through education. Our passion lies in developing emotional intelligence (EQ) skills using the medium of film to influence, impact and embed 10 values of kindness in children and young people.

Our flagship Kindness in School Programme (KISP) delivers Kindness workshops that build EQ skills such as self-awareness, self-management, social awareness, relationship skills and responsible decision-making skills. Through the delivery of experiential and fun learning, we emphasise the value that kindness brings to EQ.

We believe educating the hearts and minds of young citizens through the development of EQ skills is critical in preparing them for the challenges they face as children today, and as adults tomorrow. This means embedding very early on a culture of kindness in young minds of how kindness (or lack of it) can impact the world around them including their peers, friends, families, and community.

Activities

We have been running since June 2015 and in the last 1.5 years we have executed these two projects: 

1.Many Avatars of the Saree on 19 July 2015 
In aid of empowering homeless women in the UK (EAVE UK was the beneficiary)

Be Kind Movement presents a fun saree afternoon that depicts the multiple ways of draping India's most sensuous garment.
 
This will be Be Kind Movement's first official public event where we will promote the concept of Being Kind as we raise funds for a very worthy cause - rehabilitating homeless women facing financial hardship as a result of domestic violence or prostitution called Eaves' Alice project.
 
2. Fashion Pop Up March 16 March 2016 
In aid of Girl Child's Education Program (EASWARAMMA FOUNDATION was the beneficiary)

Be Kind Movement collaborated with International Fashion Designer and Celebrity Stylist Pria Kataria Puri to host her London Pop up Show to raise funds for the Girl Child's Education program. 

Proceeds from the event went towards an ongoing scholarship for 138 girls to pursue higher education from 14 years age upwards. Since 2000, 1,000 scholarships have been awarded and this project is now being extended to reach the Indian villages and districts in Maharashtra & Goa to benefit 300 girls. Our aim is to make the girl child self-sufficient and financially independent so she can pursue her dreams and goals to live a life free from abuse and neglect, on equal parity with men.

3. SHORT FILM to promote KINDNESS is our third project (APRIL 2017)
