What is ARK?
The Acts of Random Kindness (ARK) Project is an initiative that KCL ISoc launched back in 2012. Our aim is to provide students with a platform to serve our community.
ARK comprises of 4 sub-teams that cover areas under which we run a variety of projects throughout the year:
- Gifts for Change
- Tackling Homelessness
Doing righteous deeds is at the core of Islam and is stressed upon several times in the Holy Qur'an.
Our Prophets and righteous predecessors practiced righteous good deeds by supporting their community. KCL ISoc is putting belief and knowledge of Islam into practice by manifesting it in actions. Join us and help make a difference!
Follow our Facebook page and stay up to date with projects taking place. You are welcome to share interesting ideas with ARK'ers and help us achieve Paradise together inshaAllah.

Gifts for Change
This team focuses on establishing and bettering relationships with those around us, whether it's our neighbours, fellow students, or lecturers.
The Neighbours team runs a variety of events with this intention in mind. Recent campaigns include the #BakeForYourNeighbour and #ShareYourEid trend on social media. Both events invited students and those around them to celebrate the presence of one another. Similarly, the #SweetRelief project involved distributing candy packs across King's campuses during exam periods. We have also organised care home visits with the intention to alleviate loneliness and isolation in the elderly community.
We invite those with a particular vigour for social media events and an interest in establishing better relationships with everyone around us to join our team.
