Hope for Kids International
Hope for Kids International is the UK partner of Kids Alive International who for over 100 years, have rescued orphans and other vulnerable and forgotten children in 14 countries around the world. Through the blessing of child and programme sponsorships, these kids receive loving, holistic care and a quality education, helping break the bondage of hunger, abuse, and exploitation. Best of all, they have the opportunity to know and trust Jesus Christ and follow Him.
Most of our children are in non-residential care, receiving education, health monitoring, nourishing food, and other basics. We believe in the power of the family, and we do all we can to preserve a child’s ability to stay at home. When a child has no home or is not safe there, we care for them in loving, family-style homes where they experience individual attention and have healthy role models; counselling and trauma therapy is also supplied if required. Our goal is to place as many as possible in “forever” families in their own communities.
We accomplish all this through several types of programmes:
- Children’s homes, where house parents provide 24/7 care to children in a safe, loving atmosphere.
- Care Centres, where children come each day to receive food, clothing, and education.
- Schools, where quality education is provided for children who wouldn’t otherwise have access to schooling. In addition, children are given a meal, medical care, tutoring and devotions.
- Community programmes, which provide vital support to the whole family – including education, medical care, vocational training, and the development of micro-enterprise opportunities
