We are a new global non-profit and we are here to help.

Journey Through the Desert

I decided to form Kimiya International in the summer of 2009. I started writing down ideas until I could figure out what my purpose was in this world. I realized that every idea I was coming up with was already being implemented in some form in some part of the world – there were so many visionaries already hard at work. I then realized the need to showcase what all these non-profits and NGOs are doing, because the world needs to know about their efforts. With the help of an amazing team, it all came together. Kimiya International is here to support and raise awareness of non-profits, NGOs and individuals in the world trying to make a difference by helping other people. We are here to share their stories in one central location so our community can learn from these stories and continue to pay it forward. We are a 501(c)(3). The logo is a butterfly with a compass rose behind it – symbolizing our global reach. Kimiya is Arabic for alchemy. Figuratively, an alchemist is someone who can take something common and turn it into something precious. I believe we all have the ability to take our common stories and turn them into something amazing.

We have rates available for for-profit companies that are looking to create videos about their Corporate Social Responsibility programs. All proceeds will go to Kimiya International. We do not charge non-profits for any of our work.

Stories have been told to convey messages from the beginning of time. Let’s continue that legacy here – but with the intention of learning and educating. We hope to bring you short stories, photographs, videos and documentaries illustrating all the good happening in the world today to inspire the humanitarian in all of us. We are setting out on a new adventure, eager to hear the stories of people making a difference from every corner of the world. We hope you will join us on this journey.

Every person who wants to make the world a better place has a story to tell. So we want to know, what’s your story?

Welcome to the community.
