For the greater part of a decade, Kindness Unlimited has worked towards inspiring individuals & communities with the power of Kindness! KU fuels the human story by being a driver of empathy and continually underscoring its motto of 'Balancing Self Interest with the Common Good'. A band of connectors, catalysts and influencers, KU attempts to unite givers and takers, by virtue of breaking down divisibility, building social capital and strengthening the human connection.
In 2002, Mr. Vasant Kalbag, a then 75-year-old management consultant residing in Mumbai, created a monthly digital newsletter and also brought together a cyber-network of people who wished to spread kindness, hence first giving birth to the idea behind KU. 3 years later, Mr Kalbag along with some of the other Co- Founders decided to register a charitable foundation under the name of 'Kindness Unlimited', so as to extend their work beyond the internet and evoke social action!

A postgraduate from the Tata Institute of Social Sciences (TISS), her experience over the decades in the Human Resource industry has made her a believer in the importance and power of empathy to touch lives and make a difference.
Ms. Lopa Vyas is also the founder trustee of Kindness Unlimited. A post graduate in HRM from Narsee Monjee Institute of Management Studies, her in depth experience in the corporate and academic world makes her a rich resource person and a valuable asset to the movement.
