Mission Description

Support and help improve the wellbeing of vulnerable communities!

HumanKind delivers evidence based, sustainable solutions that ordinary people of good will can use to make a difference in the area of mental health and emotional well-being. We especially use the arts as our approach as the arts are a powerful tool that crosses language, cultural and social economic barriers.

*About the Project*
This project is a collaboration between HumanKind, Kindness Kedah and Taylor's University. 
The Brave Girls project aims at improving the well-being of at-risk girls from the B40 group. The project will use the Expressive Arts, an evidence based approach for improving self-esteem and increasing positive feelings in children and teenagers. This project involves a group of girls between the key ages of 10-15. A trainer together with a volunteer team will run the program. There will be two sessions, a first workshop with a group of girls from Kedah and a second workshop with a group of girls from Kuala Lumpur. 

*Volunteer Opportunity*

We are calling out for passionate and dedicated individuals who would like to part of this project in. The volunteer will firstly be trained in Expressive Art Making in order to facilitate the session, together with a professional trainer. As a volunteer facilitator you will fulfill a function of protection and containment to allow the teenagers to express themselves through art making. We hope to create a healthy environment where the volunteers can interact with teenagers and the teenagers can feel free to be themselves around adults.

Because of the current MCO, both the training and the workshops will be held online. The Volunteers may  choose from one of the proposed workshop dates depending on their availability. Training is compulsory.
