Project Kindness – spreading kindness during lockdown

During this unprecedented time many of us have been forced in to trying different ways of doing things. When it comes to Graeme Dingle Foundation programmes, there’s been a big shift in how we engage with our students and continue to deliver the important lessons our programmes teach.

Our teams across the country are working hard to create new ways of delivering Kiwi Can, Stars, Project K and Career Navigator – four different programmes that all work towards the same goal of showing young people what they have inside is greater than any obstacles.

Many of our programmes include a community project component that sees students giving back to their communities and despite these challenging times, our programme staff are still encouraging our students to find creative ways of completing their community challenging during lockdown.

Project K co-ordinator Kat Matteson (Canterbury) charged her new Project K students with a ‘project kindness’ Community Challenge. These images are a beautiful example of Kyra from Hornby High School making a positive contribution to the community in this time of level 4 lockdown.

We encourage everyone out there to have a go at the ‘project kindness’ challenge. What can you do in isolation to show a little kindness to those around you.
