Mandala Trust

The Mandala Trust

Operation Kindness was initiated by the Mandala Trust in 2014 in order to promote the ethic of kindness which had inspired and fuelled their work over the previous decade. In order to allow the movement to grow and develop in an organic way, full autonomy and decision making powers were transfered to the Operation Kindness General Assembly in 2016.

The Mandala Trust is a UK-based charity dedicated to supporting children and young people in vulnerable situations around the world. This is accomplished through the development of an ever-expanding network of volunteers, supporters, and community-based organisations who work together in friendship and solidarity. As a collective they are committed to the values of generosity, kindness, compassion, wisdom, and understanding.

Through targeting dedicated organisations and individuals working for their communities at a grass-roots level, and supporting them through small grants, capacity building, and developing sustainability, the Mandala Trust are able to achieve real and lasting benefits for those children and young people they aim to serve.

The ever-expanding circle of kindness which has become the Mandala Trust has now reached communities throughout Asia, Africa, South America, and the Middle East. At the centre of all that they do is a firm commitment to promoting and taking action through simple acts of kindness, be it through fundraising, volunteering, or delivering life-changing services on the ground; and it is this simplicity of purpose which grounds and energises their activities.
