"We may not be able to control the world around us, but we can choose how to react. We can choose to respond with love, compassion and kindness." - SAOK
Small Acts of Kindness (SAOK) strives to help young people in various countries around that the world that have been affected by poverty and conflict. Working closely with local schools, the children develop life skills through tailored support programmes.

"My idea or dream, is to bring a greater awareness and understanding of our nature into the way we educate our children and our youth. To develop within them a greater sense of morality built on the principles of light and love, of fairness and justice, of consideration and responsibility for all life." - SAOK
