KIS Giving

Change [cheynj] verb
1. to make the form, nature, content, future course, etc., of (something) different from what it would be if left alone: to change one’s name; to change one’s opinion; to change the course of history.
2. to become different: Overnight the nation’s mood changed.
3. to undergo transformation or transition: The music changed to a slow waltz.

Change is a word we hear quite often these days. On a large scale it may be economic change, climate change, or political change. In our own backyards, all over the world…and at KIS we are experiencing transformation and transition. It is a change of leadership; our colleagues are moving on; our children are growing up. Most important, it is a new way of learning: Learning to adapt, learning to keep our hopes and dreams alive for our families and for a better world, learning to keep our faith in hard times and learning to be grateful for the good. Being part of the KIS community is a life-changing experience.

“Let us not look back in anger, nor forward in fear, but around in awareness.”
