KIDS ALIVE INTERNATIONAL INC
April 14, 2009

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!

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

the adult children who have grown up in the homes and have graduated from high school and are going to college!

More feedback

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

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!

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
