The Kindness Foundation is classified as a non-partisan, non-sectarian Christian education society.Teaching Biblical morals and values in Public Education in Russia brought a strengthening of the culture through the re-emergence of traditional Biblical principles when it was adopted in 1993. Using the model which Kindness helped develop and implement in Russia, a few years ago, Kindness began focusing this strategy in Ukraine through a signed agreement with the Ukrainian Ministry of Education to provide Bibles, Biblical lesson plans, teacher training and resources directly to their Public School System and is now promoting this effort to all countries.
At the request of our founder, Dr. Olga Lutsenko, the Kindness Foundation is preparing to present an International Christmas Art Competition, Exhibition, and Exchange.
After the fall of Communism in 1991, Dr. Olga, while working as a high level education official in Russia, was selected by the Russian government to identify a resource from which to teach morals and values to their students. After much research, she and her colleagues chose the Bible as that resource and the curriculum they designed has been utilized in Russian schools for over 20 years.
In 1996, Dr. Olga founded the Kindness Foundation to raise money for student bibles, teacher training, printing of the Eternal Word magazine and Christian Education Resource Centers across Russia and found much needed support from DeLois and Lavon Smith in Hattiesburg, now the home office of the charitable organization.
Beginning with the “Christianity 2000” conference in Moscow, the Kindness Foundation and the Russian Department of Education began presenting Biblical student art competitions. The winning pieces have been displayed in prominent locations across Russia before becoming a part of our ‘Art for Eternity’ collection. Recently, this collection was the featured art exhibit at Festival South 2016 in Hattiesburg.
This year Dr. Olga has asked that we hold an International Christmas Art Competition, Exhibition and Exchange to inspire students across both continents and we are pleased to extend an invitation for your school to take part.
On behalf of the Kindness Foundation, we sincerely welcome students in grades 5 through 12 at schools and churches who choose to participate in this exciting event.
