Kindhat's mission is to reduce global consumption, strengthen local communities and increase human happiness. With this in mind, the organization has created an app that enables neighbors to share skills, tools and common household items. For example, a user can enter into the app a tool they need to borrow, and the application will ask nearby friends and neighbors.

The organization markets the app as a cost-effective — and friendly — way to exchange goods and services. Kindhat is a pay-it-forward community, so neighbors have the option to show gratitude by donating a portion of money saved to local nonprofits benefiting the community.
