Inspiring Towards Greater Kindness

The mission of the World Kindness Movement is to inspire Individuals, Families, Academia, Corporates and Communities towards greater kindness and ultimately to connect nations to create a kinder world.

World Kindness INDIA received independent international endorsement as the Peak National Kindness Body by the World Kindness Movement.

 

The World Kindness Movement is the peak global body and international non-government organization with no religious or political affiliation. Its chief objective is to foster goodwill among the broad community – local, national and international – by way of kindness, and in so doing, create greater understanding and co-operation between all people and all nations throughout the world.

The idea behind the World Kindness Movement crystallized at a conference in Tokyo in 1997 when the Small Kindness Movement of Japan brought together like-minded kindness movements from around the world.

The World Kindness Movement was officially launched in Singapore on November 18, 2000. Today, the World Kindness Movement brings together a worldwide coalition of kindness organizations that study and promote improved individual and collective human behavior.

Current members include over 24 nations, with representatives from Australia, Bangladesh, Brazil, Canada, China, France, India, Indonesia, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Nepal, New Zealand, Nigeria, Oman, Pakistan, Romania, Scotland, South Africa, Switzerland, South Korea, Thailand, Uganda, Ukraine, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom and the USA.

Sonal Singh

Trustee

Sonal is a HR professional with 20 + years’ experience, currently working with Thyssenkrupp Industrial Solutions (India) Pvt Ltd as Head of Group – HR & Admin. Why KU resonates with Sonal? The world around us is becoming quite intolerant, hostile, and self-centred. I believe seeding kindness can be one of strong remedy. She quotes Theologian and Philosopher Albert Schweitzer – “Constant kindness can accomplish much. As the sun makes ice melt, kindness causes misunderstanding, mistrust, and hostility to evaporate.” Through Kindness Unlimited she would like to spread kindness so that it melts the hostility away and brings the world closer.
