“CENTRE FOR KINDNESS & HAPPINESS STUDIES” (CKHS)
The ‘CENTRE FOR KINDNESS & HAPPINESS STUDIES’ is a KIND LABORATORY organized by SHOMMAN Foundation. This is a knowledge-based academia to engender a Moral Revolution focusing on kindness and happiness. Its objectives are to enhance and update Moralities, Gratitude, Forgiveness, Culture of Giving, and Humbleness – those merits that need to be a ‘Kind Person’.
Extensive research has been going on to explore ‘Kindest people of the world. It is mainly on the importance of the ‘Social Psychology of Kindness (& other moral values) and its effects on human’s well-being’ and finding out the ‘kindest people’ on this planet to motivate the younger generation. Along with this study, we have organized (by Dr. Rubaiul Murshed as its main author) to write a book on the ‘Kindest People in the 20th Century (1901-2021)’. In fact, he has been studying/ researching biographies & lifestyles (around the world) meticulously since 2020 and dreams of publishing the book titled ‘The 100 Kindest People of the 20th Century’ by 2024/25. One of the key objectives of this study is to identify and explore the lives of the 100 kindest people of the 20th century – the most devastating period in the social history of mankind (in the last five thousand years). Through this research, I want to evaluate their act of kindness along with their matchless influences on our societies, from a heterogeneous perspective; and understand how and to what extent their contribution has shaped the modern world. Another important objective of the research is exploring the strong linkage between ‘Kindness and well-being of kind people’.
Specially designed Courses for School Children and Empirical Research related to moral values and social work are also part of the CKHS’s effort. Awareness of social justice is a part of our activities. We introduced a slogan, “SURVIVAL OF THE KINDEST”. This is a journey towards building personal and social learning for ‘EDUCATION 2030’.
