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”.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

hearing from the child that I sponsor and learning about how she is growing, etc.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

humble, hard working, honest and sincere in serving. They also demonstrated a love for the people of the Dominician.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

impact the lives of millions by educating and caring for children in third world countries.

How frequently have you been involved with the organization?

About every month

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.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

A very poor neighborhood school. The kids are loved, taught, fed, and clothed. Miracles have happened in their lives. Many come from abusive situations, but find unconditional love at school.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Let more people know about this wonderful organization and how it is changing the lives of the kids it serves. I would let people know how easy it is to sponsor a child and that they have the opportunity to actually meet that child. Do vocational training

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The interaction with the nationals. They are warm and loving and happy to see you. We are treated like family. I don't even speak Spanish, but hugs are international! We get to spend time with the kids we sponsor and see where our money goes.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Self-sacrificing, wonderful, loving, hard-working, strong Christians, dedicated.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Save millions of kids all around the world. Provide medical, dental, and educational needs. Support more loving missionaries to care for these needy kids. Help families stay together by helping with their needs. Teach more kids about God.

Ways to make it better...

I could have stayed longer! We have found that even a month is not long enough to enjoy our experience and finish the work that needs to be done! We would love to be able to go more often.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

KAI needs more sponsors!! There are so many needs to be met in the lives of these kids. KAI goes into the poorest areas and reaches the most needy kids. All of these kids need food, love, and an education. KAI meets these needs.

One thing I'd also say is that...

I have never felt unsafe in the DR. We went to church by the school and it was full of KAI kids (without their parents); it made me cry, but also made me realize the impact that the ministry is having on young lives. God is alive and well there.

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!

The Great!

happy, dedicated, loving, genuine, self-sacrificing.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

help thousands more children who just don't have anyone who will take care of them - and give them what every child needs - someone to love and take care of them!

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.

The Great!

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Newsletters, emails, the web-site, testimonies.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

need to know a lot more about disease and foreign policy.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

the heart of the people that work for the organization. They are the hands and feet of the Lord.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

all very different and generous individuals. Generous with their time, love and financial support.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

save THOUSANDS of orphans at the deepest ends of the earth.

Ways to make it better...

I would have known and had a heart for this organization sooner!

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

foreign policy and Satan.

One thing I'd also say is that...

if you want to give to an organization that gives as much as they can back to the children they support, Kids Alive is the ministry you are looking for.
