A Girls' Brigade mission initiative has launched a new film exploring the issue of kindness.
Entitle Dare to Care, it's a project of koko (Keep On Keeping On), a multi-award-winning blog for teenage girls, and suggests making kindness more of a habit.
koko project co-ordinator Meg Cannon said: 'There's a line in the film that says, "Together we could change the world" and we really do believe that. We want to challenge young people to look out for one another and make kindness more of a habit in their lives. We hope that this film sparks conversations and moves young people to action.'
The film was launched at a Girls' Brigade England and Wales conference last week and has been part-funded by Thorpe Hall School in Essex and Girls on Board, an initiative that helps girls between the ages of eight and 18 navigate the often troubled waters of friendship problems.
Girls from Thorpe Hall School appear in the film. Headteacher Andrew Hampton said: 'I love the film; it's very powerful. The messaging is such a close fit to our Girls On Board initiative, which explores the issues surrounding girl friendships in schools, so we were delighted to support koko's latest film.
'It shines a light on the topic in such a creative way and is a very positive resource.'
