June 17, 2019: The GEP is starting an International Kindness Club. The youth and children who had participated in the recent Essay Competition on Kindness are the Founding Members and Ambassadors of the Club. Anyone under the age of 25 is invited to participate in the Club.
The Club will meet regularly online and annually in person to carry out activities to uplift the suffering of others, and to spread more love, gentleness and care in the world.
The Club will be inaugurated by the Minister for Tourism, Govt of Kerala, at the 1st Remembrance Day of Mr. Sanal Kumar on June 22. Mr. Kumar was the former manager of the Global Energy Parliament and Isa Viswa Prajnana Trust, who had dedicated his life to the service of both. In the words of the Speaker of our Parliament Dr. C.V. Ananda Bose, "Sanal was a kind soul. A silent worker, and very loveable.” In his memory the GEP is starting the Kindness Club to bring up the next generation to have these special qualities.
