Kids Alive International is a Christ-centered organization that believes every child deserves to live free from the bondage of hunger, abuse, and exploitation.
The commitment to this Biblical truth compels us to deliver life’s essentials and with the same compassion and excellence that they would want for the children in their lives.
They rescue and provide for orphaned and forgotten children one at a time, but they accomplish so much more.
Together, they empower families and communities by developing partnerships and sharing the faith, knowledge, and infrastructure that creates self-sustaining legacies of transformation.
Kids Alive International is a Christ-centered mission dedicated to rescuing orphans and vulnerable children – meeting their spiritual, physical, educational, and emotional needs.
All of the children in their care were orphaned, abandoned, or abused, living on the streets, and victims of poverty, disease, or war. Kids Alive rescues these children – one at a time – and enrolls them into one of the Children’s Homes, a Care Center, or School program that is best suited to the care they need.
Kids Alive reflects the love of Christ by rescuing orphans and vulnerable children, nurturing them with quality holistic care, and sharing with them the transforming power of Jesus Christ so they are enabled to give hope to others.
With change happening all around us, Kids Alive stands firm on the clear teachings of God’s Word. Those solid, biblical values have guided ministry to help children for almost 100 years and this will never change.
Everything they do in meeting the spiritual, physical, educational, and emotional needs of the children God places in their care is based on the solid foundation of God’s Word. They will continue to raise up these girls and boys in the nurture and admonition of the Lord by the principles of truth clearly proclaimed in the Bible.
They are currently reaching children in 15 countries with the redeeming love of Christ.
