Mission: Cultural Care Kids First Foundation, drawing on the strength of the global community of Cultural Care Au Pair, provides resources to support organizations that strive to make a lasting difference in the lives of children in need around the world.

Results: Members of the Cultural Care community -- local coordinators, staff, teachers, au pairs and even kids -- hold local fundraising events.

We have worked closely with several partners over the years which has allowed us to help in considerable ways, get to know the children, and provide hands-on assistance. Our Fund Their Future program, Sponsor a Child program, emergency assistance and capital grants allow us to provide small but significant assistance as well as make large, impactful donations.

It has been such a pleasure having so many opportunities presented to help get involved in Kid’ First! I just recently got back from a Kid’s First service trip in Cartagena, Colombia and was able to see first hand the impact that this organization makes. Kid’s First is life changing to all those they support.

Cultural Care Kids first does such marvelous work, not only for the charitable programs it supports and the beneficiaries of those programs, but for the people who participate in its efforts. It’s not just Cultural Care employees, but the young people from all over the world and their host families who take part. They take that experience with them and even start projects of their own because of it.

This is an amazing organization and really committed to enriching kids' lives. The group does more than just give money - they're hands on, whether that means stuffing backpacks for back-to-school kids in under-served communities here in the US, to building a playroom for a daycare in Colombia, to providing educational materials for school girls in India. And 100% of the proceeds go to helping children in need.

I first met Kids First when they came to visit a small group of students in Colombia that I was working with. They brought school supplies and materials but they also brought hand made books, created by Local Childcare consultants. These were so beautiful and personal that the kids felt so special. I instantly fell in love and today still work with this organization. They are open o helping all groups, big and small and focus on bringing education and culture to children, the things that sometimes they don't have the resources to focus on. Kids First is constantly looking for new partnerships and different ways. I love this organization!

What an amazing nonprofit this is! I had the unique opportunity to travel to four different foundations supported by Kids First in Colombia. Kids First did their research on which foundations could really use the assistance, listened to what the needs of each foundation were, rallied to get as many supplies as possible and delivered directly. To witness the smiles and joy that our contributions brought is something I will never forget!

I have seen firsthand the positive effect Cultural Care Kids First Foundation has made on the lives of young Mothers & their sweet beautiful children, at a childcare center supported by the foundation in South Africa. I was able to spend time at the childcare center, enjoying the daily routine, of song's, play, reading and the teaching of small motor skills. children are provided with a warm lunch & a clean environment for naptime. Everything running smoothly, with loving guidance. I'm so very proud to be a part of the life-enriching experance for everyone involved.

I have been involved with Cultural Care Kids First for many years. When I was lucky enough to go to South Africa to visit the organizations Kids First supports, I could see how well organized it is, and how much Kids First really care for their recipients - and make sure that the donations are used in the best way.

I have since sponsored a child, volunteered at events around the country, as well as worked with our team of runners at the New York marathon. I look forward to many more events in the future and the opportunity to help children around the world.

This is a wonderful organization giving to children in need. I helped pack backpacks with school supplies for kids in Puerto Rico who suffered from the Hurricane. I also visited a school for underprivileged girls in South Africa who were given funds to attend this school as well as help the school get much needed financial help to operate. I know this is a wonderful organization.

The experience goes beyond expectations, I loved everything! The team, the children impacted, the activities! Everything makes it an amazing environment to help! I loved the activities of the cultural boxes (DIDART) so children could learn about different cultures and traditions without getting in an airplaine! I hope to continue participating with the organization!

I have been involved with Kid's First for several years and have seen the amazing things this charity has accomplished. Kid's First helps children literally all over the world, including here in the US. Last year, when Hurricane Harvey devastated Texas, they donated money to the local Red Cross and Houston Food Bank. About 3 years ago, I visited The Sold Project in Chiang Mai, Thailand, and saw the outdoor sala Kid's First had constructed to give the young students shelter from the sun and rain. Back in April, I visited Molo Mhalaba, an all girl's STEM school that helps underprivileged children in Cape Town, South Africa. I saw the books and other learning materials myself and others had purchased for the school put into use. I now personally sponsor a student at the school I have been part of groups, putting together backpacks with supplies for students coming to the Boston area from Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria. I have helped assemble craft kits and other supplies for Native American children in the Dakotas. I support and believe in Cultural Care Kid's First Foundation!
