AND DEVELOPMENT INITIATIVES!
“Sow your seed in the morning, and at evening let your
hands not be idle, for you do not know which will succeed,
whether this or that, or whether both will do equally well.”
Ecclesiastes 11: 6

I have given our project

At Kids Alive, we believe we have a responsibility to
support and draw upon the dignity, respect, creativity
and wisdom of those temporarily set back by circumstances, often beyond their control, in order to accompany them to tangible, sustainable change.
Kids Alive is committed to listening, interacting, and
providing access to training, research and resources
appropriate to each individual and community we
walk with to identify core needs and possible solutions that will last.
Some of the initiatives that have been developed or
• Starting businesses through creative micro-
are being explored are:
• Restoring land for farming purposes in Zambia
so they can grow the food that will feed hungry
financing in Peru so that youth and adults can have
jobs that will provide for their families.
• Providing resources in Haiti for job training and
small business development.
• Supporting partnerships in Guatemala that ensure
families have clean water, adequate nutrition and
skills training for employment opportunities.
• Providing resources for networking and for training
grants that can be used to attend conferences
on effective, culturally relevant and sustainable,
• Independence Homes and Programs that seek to
equip older children in our care with how to live on
their own and continue their education or vocational
training and application into their adult years.
“As I have put this Independence Program to life, I have seen the importance
it will have when these teens step out of the protection of Kids Alive.
I am [even] more passionate about the work I am doing now than I was when
I began…I want to make sure it is the best program these teens can go into! “
