Kind Coins Campaign

Empower Your Students to become
Global Citizens & Compassionate Philanthropists

The 2019 – 2021 Kind Coins for Mexico Campaign is a unifying service project to help build a school and friendship center in Tijuana, Mexico. All Great Kindness Challenge students, families, and communities are whole-heartedly invited to participate.

Great news! Despite COVID-related delays, The Kind Coins for Mexico friendship center building project has officially begun. The friendship center is scheduled to be completed in January 2022 and we can’t wait to share with your students the video of the finished friendship center.

P.S. The age appropriate video watching guides are available on the GKC Tools page.

Meet Nicole. She is a bright and vivacious girl with a smile that lights up the world. Nicole and her family are among the thousands of immigrants, refugees, and asylum seekers from Mexico and Central America who have settled in Tijuana. Living in a town that borders the USA and with drug-related violence prevalent in her neighborhood, Nicole wishes for safety and unity. To make that wish come true, we will build a much needed pre-primary school and friendship center in Nicole’s neighborhood.  The friendship center will be a safe place where children on both sides of the border can gather to learn, build bridges and make new friends.
