A MESSAGE FROM YVONNE

The event will feature some of the artists from around Africa who collectively created the Kindness Contagion song 
and music video in 2020, including Seun Kuti, Didier Awadi, Gyedu-Blay Ambolley, Xixel, Gasmillah, Sipho Mabuse and Pops Mohamed as well as Yvonne Chaka Chaka and the Deputy Resident Representative of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), Mr Gabriel Dava.

It will also include presentations around Kindness from the organizations who have taken the Kindness Pledge, a musical performance of the Kindness Contagion song all the way from Los Angeles, a panel on the importance of African wildlife and animals in the kindness conversation, announcements of some kindness projects for 2022 from the network…

Plus time and space for a discussion of the way forward to start to answer the question: “What can we do to spread a contagion of
kindness from Africa to itself and around the world?”

Kindness Contagion Video

To kick-start the long-term Pan African movement, this initiative brought together a group of Africa’s finest artists at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020 to collaborate and produce what has become the icon of this initiative. Rooted in African values of ubuntu, friendship, generosity, collaboration and togetherness, the song encourages acts of kindness and the notion of paying it forward. The artists all waived their rights to any proceeds from the song, making this the first act of kindness promoted by the initiative.

I promise to be kind to another person or creature, myself, or the planet every day, and to share the Kindness Contagion Pledge with my family, friends, colleagues and networks. 

Our organization undertakes to:

1. Promote kindness as an added value to our human capital
2. Encourage our members, employees and/or leaders to take the individual kindness contagion pledge
3. Find ways to express kindness in our internal and external policies and projects in 2022 and beyond, to help ensure the world sees Africa as a core source of kindness for the world

Africa has released a KINDNESS CONTAGION

Kindness Contagion aims to promote and amplify kindness as the world’s most important natural resource and most valuable human capital. To celebrate the variety and richness of Africa’s culture and tradition of kindness and to help bring it to the world. In 2020, at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020, we brought together a group of top artists from across Africa to collaborate in producing the Kindness Contagion song and music video you see on this site. Under the banner of #SpreadKindnessAfrica, this initiative celebrates people, organisations, networks, and companies, in Africa and around the world, who make it their practice to be kind to all creatures including themselves and the planet. We say kindness is inherent in all of us – and indeed, highly contagious.
