At Kids Alive International we believe every child, even those with the most challenging needs, is a priority to God, and far too many are overlooked, unheard, exploited, and threatened.

Our mission is the call of Isaiah 1:17, to serve these children by constantly learning to do good, earnestly seeking justice, standing up to what oppresses them, and advocating for their rights.
Accomplishing that mission means every child we serve will have a present and future where they:
Enjoy a vibrant life-changing relationship with God
Experience emotional and physical well-being
Are equipped for a life of independence and service
Live life in family and community, free of fear and violence
