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 Network's approach to networking local Churches and local child-care providers provides for a powerful, scalable model to improve the situation of children-at-risk. This network approach lifts up kids by empowering these local workers and giving them tools to improve their effectiveness. Programs like Early Encounter, help to network local groups to intervene before Sex Traffickers can approach children. Other Viva programs also are empowering children in the World's slums to work together to advocate for better treatment of poor children. I have been compelled to join the Board of this very effective organization as they have a very impactful, training-based model that is truly helping people around the world change the lives of some of the most vulnerable children in their own communities.

Viva Network is playing a very critical role in making it possible for small non profits working with children at risk to meet and share ideas as well as experiences. Viva's regional network consultants also provide valuable consulting services to the member

There are so many child sponsorship organizations out there, what attracted me to Viva was the Network model. By working across organizations providing care to children in a given community, you can have such a more significant impact on numerous kids. The return on investment is so much greater.

Viva Network North America is connected to local projects around the world and makes a real impact in children's lives. Viva is unique is its ability to work in some of the poorest places in the world, where it connects local initiatives with each other through collaboration techniques -- and where it provides those local projects with training and support that allows the local projects to thrive. I have visited some Viva's connections and projects and have seen the true impact upon children at risk from supporting Viva and its efforts. I only wish more people knew of Viva and supported it, because that would expand its impact even farther and deeper.
