One night while enjoying a family dinner together, we talked about how, while living among close and great friends, we may still feel unsupported and sometimes distant. We feel this especially when asking for something unexpected, and as a result feel helpless.
We shared how crazy it was that we’re surrounded by people we trust, yet we feel uncomfortable and guilty asking them for help. On the other hand, we really want to help our friends out when they need us the most, but we don’t always know how or when.
“If I had an easy way of asking the people I trust for help, I would be much calmer, less anxious and more focused on my daily life.” Well, this wish was our command - and it became our mission and passion.
Kumbaya was born from a strong need and a deep understanding that to get by in today’s crazy world we must tap into our existing resources and help each other out. Kumbaya is here to help us parents cope with those daily challenges and make asking for help as simple as 3 clicks.
