One of our world class performers will bring this unforgettable adventure to your school. Using storytelling, music, interactive videos, magical illusions and audience participation, your students will go on a journey to Africa, where things are quite different.
We have partnered with Bidii Primary school in Nairobi, Kenya, who invited us (and our friend, NED, a lovable cartoon character) to visit their beautiful country. Although there was some fear and reluctance at first because of the differences, we quickly learn that we have something in common with the kids in Kenya that can break down barriers of difference… a kind heart and an openness to friendship.
NED's Kindness Adventure assembly can support your initiatives for developing a positive and caring school climate. Its proactive approach aims to prevent many forms of mistreatment, including bullying, by showcasing the sense of satisfaction that takes place when a child chooses to show kindness, respect and acceptance.
This one page overview gives a brief explanation of the program.

Located in the Buruburu neighborhood of Nairobi, Kenya is the Bidii Primary School. While it appears still at the moment of the photo, on a weekday between 7am and 5pm this modestly sized building hosts more than 2000 eager students!
The headteacher, Mrs. Anne Odhiambo, kicks off our Kindness Adventure by inviting us to visit the students at her school.
Meet the wonderful Bidii Students! This playful group of kids enjoyed showing Mallory all around their school.
The students had a blast playing with Tim H. on the playground!
One of the most popular games was a circle chant that seemed universally appealing in every way!
On the other side of town, our crew got to know the craftspeople at one of Nairobi’s bustling public markets. Kenyan’s frequent these markets to buy popular handmade items such as rubber sandals, cloth handbags, and gorgeous necklaces and bracelets.
Outside of the big city is an entirely unique side of Kenya. Here, Maasai families work hard to preserve important parts of their traditional culture.
In a region of Kenya called the Maasai Mara, we were delighted to see demonstrations of Maasai rituals that have hundreds of years of cultural history.
Our performers saw some amazing wildlife on the Maasai Mara, too—and are really excited for your students to see more of these incredible animals.
Wait, that’s no deer! It’s actually called an impala, and is native to Kenya and other eastern and southern Africa countries.
On this particular road, the Kindness Adventure team learned that commuter traffic has an entirely different meaning over in Kenya!
