Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Christianity, International, International Development, International Relief, Religion

Mission: For more than 90 years, Kids Alive International missionaries and national staff have provided life-giving hope and care to children at risk - orphans, street children, abandoned, abused, and victims of war, disease, and extreme poverty. We are now operating 86 Kids Alive ministry locations in 17 countries worldwide.

Programs:

The first and still most critical Kids Alive ministry programs are residential homes for children, where needy children live together in family units with several other children and their own Christian house parents. In this way children can experience — often for the first time – what it means to have their physical needs met while also experiencing the love and warmth of a family. Multiple residential homes are often grouped together as an extended community of Kids Alive kids.

In every case our ministries are designed to meet the needs of children within the context of the society where they live. Children in our homes are cared for from infancy through young adulthood, and so are prepared to become responsible and independent members of society. Following high school graduation, many of our children pursue higher education in local colleges and universities to become professionals such as doctors, lawyers, teachers, and engineers.

Recently did a ten day mission trip with my daughter in Peru with Kids Alive. What an awesome opportunity to sponsor a child you have interacted with, hugged, laughed and cried with. Seeing the love and care given to these children is life changing. Kids Alive may not have the name attraction of World Vision, Compasssion, or other well known charities, but they are definitely impacting the world for Christ in a huge wall. I was impressed in every way with this organization.

I spent a week in the Dominican Republic working at a Kids Alive orphanage a few years back. This organization truly meets the physical and spiritual needs of the children in their care. I was amazed at the relationship the leaders had with the children – wonderfully loving relationships. I have supported this organization financially for years and will continue. They honor that Lord in caring for “the least of these”.

My husband and I have been going to Palo Blanco in the Dominican Republic for six years. We started building the school by laying the first row of blocks. We have gone back at least once a year ever since. We sponsor two kids there and get to see them every year to see how they have progressed. KAI is pouring money and love into these kids. They are flourishing! It has been a privilege to see how God is working in their lives. Now we are concentrating on doing vocational training for the boys so they will be able to support a family as adults. Kids Alive uses the money that sponsors send in for the care and education of the kids. We have seen where our money goes and how it has helped the kids at Palo Blanco.

I recently had the privilege of visiting the Kids Alive children's homes in Kenya, which meant that I was able to meet the little girl I sponsor (who was once an abandoned baby in a local hospital in Kenya)! What a joy that was -a miracle that I never thought would happen! The caregivers at the Children's Home are quick to share that "my" little girl is always quick to help "her siblings" in the home. Just think - this child who has no father or mother - is now reaching out loving and helping the other children who are just like her! That touches my heart! At the homes we met children who had only been living there for a short time and those who had just graduated from high school and were enrolling in a university to pursue a degree in law, business and education! I will never forget my visit to the children's homes in Kenya...or meeting the little girl I sponsor!

Our recent visit to the ministry of Kids Alive in Kenya was most encouraging. We saw first-hand how orphans and underprivileged children are cared for in such a loving, caring and professional way. Their operations and the people involved were first class in every way, from the leadership in the U.S. (some of whom traveled with us) to the staff in each location. I was also impressed with their efficient operations both financially and from a management perspective. It is so refreshing to see God's work being done so well and the impact they are making in the lives of so many children that had little or no hope. Now through the ministry of Kids Alive and those who support them financially, there will be hundreds who will be able to live productive lives and eventually eternity in heaven. All because some people cared for them.

Kids Alive is an organization that has openned my eyes to the basic needs of children in our world. These are real kids that don't have clean water or shelter, kids that were abandoned by their birth parents because of a disease that the parents were not educated about. These are bright kids with hope now that Kids Alive has created a loving home and school environment for them. They now know of the Lord and know that people around the globe are praying for their health and happiness. Praise the Lord for His work with Kids Alive around the world.
