Bullying is a prevalent issue worldwide. Many children are being verbally and physically attacked in schools. There is also too much hatred online and cyberbullying is on the rise. This is the reason why The #StandTogether National Kindness Week campaign is organized. Initiated by R.AGE and SP Setia, a property developer, this impactful campaign wants to counter the rise of bullying cases in schools and spread kindness. It aims to make schools a safer and kinder place for children. When kindness becomes part of their everyday life at school, the children will continue with it as life goes on.
Both teachers and students can contribute to National Kindness Week. Teachers can register their schools to be part of the campaign and they will receive a free Kindness Week programme developed by experts. Students can participate by submitting their own Kindness Project ideas. The best ideas will receive grant funding of up to RM1,000 or US$250 to implement the ideas This way, students can be empowered to run their own kindness project. This campaign also hopes to inspire organizations in other countries across the region to join in the Kindness Revolution.
