Why Stay Kind?

State Of The Nation

Kindness is the true currency of humanity. Each and everyone of us benefits when giving or receiving an act of kindness. As a youth centric organisation we see national kindness ultimately benefiting our youth and keeping them safe from bullying, violence, hazing and suicide.
