Nonprofit Overview

Causes: International, International Relief

Mission: To connect, equip and support those working to change the lives of children at risk around the world.

Programs: Part of an international christian charity, viva north america is inspiring lasting change in children's lives through the power of collective action because it has a vision to see children safe, well and fulfilling their god-given potential. There are many childcare workers, churches, local projects and international charities trying to help children, yet a lack of money, people and time means there is a limit to what they can achieve alone. Viva connects more than 3,000 churches and over 1,000 organizations through 37 community networks across 22 countries, helping them to do more for children together. As this collective action increases the unity, quality and impact of their work, the lives of 918,000 children around the world are being transformed.

Viva's global work with vulnerable children is cutting edge. With over 16 years of experience, Viva has figured out how to bring together, enlarge and deepen, the huge grassroots response to children at risk. By organizing once-isolated grassroots organizations and projects serving children into viable, mature networks united around a common vision and purpose, they are able to literally transform the lives of children as well as the communities in which they live. A network is able to combine the skills and talents of hundreds of people and leaders as well as leverage resources, multiplying its impacts several times over at different levels. The best thing is that these networks become a strong voice on behalf of children and can eventually work on initiatives that begin to SOLVE children at risk issues, in the areas of safety, health, and education. Working together is not a new concept - but working together effectively and consistently, through high quality training and measuring the influences and impacts on children and their communities, is cutting edge!!
