We provide leadership experiences with children through volunteerism and fundraising. The children helping are learning leadership skills, gaining confidence & wisdom, and those receiving are feeling loved, getting needs met and tasting hope. We fulfill monetary and moral support to those in need.
What started out as a really simple idea from a 10 year old to simply raise $240 for a child in Africa, turned into a leadership academy for kids that has raised over $100,000 in the first 3 years for children in need. To date they have given thousands of dollars to orphans in Haiti, a counter trafficking program in Ghana, Africa, homeless children, various local kids with severe medical complications, sent 6,200 zip lock bags filled with candy to our troops, started a global pen pal program, sent 500 backpacks filled with school supplies to children rescued from trafficking, 175 stuffed annimals on Christmas Eve to a children's hospital and books to chilren in remote areas in the Philippines.
All demographics, ages 5-18yrs old with a sweet spot on 10-15yrs of age. The "crutial" time in a teens life.
Direct beneficiaries per year:
Trafficked children, homeless children

Lee_6's Review for Kids Helping Kids LeadershipAcademy, Inc.
Kids Helping Kids (KHK): The power of belief can enable amazing outcomes, but it's the power of the people that can change the world! Gifted with the opportunity to work with Tyler Page (KHK teen co-founder) at TEDxREDMOND, I have first-hand knowledge of the rare opportunity this non-profit affords youth. Kids Helping Kids is not a catchy name, it is a reality that touches and helps children in Africa and across the United States. Laura Page (KHK co-founder) has envisioned opening KHK Leadership Academies across the USA, and I'd love to see her dream become a reality. Please join me in supporting this possibility.
