About Us

KindKinis is a swimwear company specializing in quality and trendy swimwear at affordable, transparent prices. When you purchase swimwear from us, a portion of the proceeds goes towards humanitarian projects—specifically towards building wells in Africa, India, and South America. 


KindKinis was founded in 2015 as a creative solution to ending the global water crisis, starting with Africa and South America. KindKinis sees how we can unlock human potential by providing reliable water projects to communities in Africa, India, and South America who suffer needlessly from a lack of access to clean water and proper sanitation.

Before starting Kindkinis, Merilyn, Founder, and CEO was regularly involved in helping her community. During her school days, she was a volunteer counselor on crisis hotlines. After graduation, she started working as a behavioral therapist for children with autism. She worked in this field for 3-4 years, where she helped many children with learning disabilities. Her most recent job before KindKinis was as a counselor at an orphanage in East Los Angeles, where she assisted girls between the ages of 6-18 who suffered from drug-related issues, broken homes, and more.

Merilyn has always had a love and a sense of passion for finding ways to help human lives, so she decided to incorporate her love for humanity into her vision of starting a business. We realized that the water crisis is real and that it is affecting many people especially women and children.  Women and girls in different parts of the developing countries are spending hours a day fetching dirty water. Drinking polluted water leads to illness and disease, robbing entire communities of their futures.

Lack of access to safe water and proper sanitation limits education and food production, and it harms health and leads to a cycle of poverty.

We want to help our neighbors and know you do, too. When you buy swimwear from us, you help bring clean water through new wells, rehabbed wells,  rainwater catchment systems. A portion of all our sales goes towards this initiative to make an impact in ending the water crisis.

Socially conscious and charitable at heart, Kindkinis strives for the perfect balance—quality swimwear delivered to you with love.


TOGETHER WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE
