Kids Alive reaches out to vulnerable children where they are and works to meet their unique needs. Kids Alive International rescues girls and boys, one at a time, out of some of the worst conditions imaginable. Many are orphans...others are from broken homes...some have intact families but live in such desperate poverty that their parents cannot even feed them, much less educate them or provide health care. Each child receives the treatment appropriate to his or her needs.

Mission statement

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 better ways to meet their needs, earnestly seeking justice for them, empowering them for a healthy future, and advocating for community change.

Statement of faith

We believe in the one infinite God, eternally existing in three persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

We believe in Jesus Christ, the second person of the Trinity, and that, as the Son of God, He became incarnate by the Holy Spirit, being born of the Virgin Mary; that He truly rose from the dead, ascended into heaven, and is now there engaged in intercession for us at the right hand of the Father.

We believe in the Holy Spirit, the third person of the Godhead, and that He is ever present and active in and with every true born child of God, and that He is present to convict the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment.

We believe that the Scriptures of the Old and the New Testaments are given by divine inspiration; that they are the infallible, supreme, and the final authority in faith and life.

We believe that man was created in the image of God that he sinned, and thereby incurred not only physical death, but also spiritual death or separation from God; that all human beings are born with a sinful nature.

We believe that Jesus Christ died for our sins, according to the Scriptures; that He, as the representative and substitutionary sacrifice for sin, obtained redemption by the shedding of His blood for all who believe in Him.

We believe in "that blessed hope," the personal and imminent return of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.

We believe that all who repent of their sins and believe in the Lord Jesus Christ are freely justified by the Father, born again of the Holy Spirit, and thereby become children of God.

We believe in the bodily resurrection of both the just and the unjust; the everlasting blessedness of the saved, and the everlasting conscious punishment of the lost.

Response from ministry

President George W. Bush awarded Mr. Chuck Hinken the Presidential Volunteer Service Award this past April 2007.

Chuck and his wife, Mary, volunteered this year for a couple of months at our Kids Alive Peru Children's Home in Lima. Besides being "Grandpa and Grandma" to the kids, they assumed total maintenance of the Home making lots of much-needed repairs.

The President's Volunteer Service Award recognizes individuals, families, and groups that have achieved a certain standard measured by the number of volunteer hours served over a 12-month period or cumulative hours earned over the course of a lifetime.

For three consecutive years, The Michael and Susan Dell Foundation have awarded a grand to Kids Alive International for their work in Kenya and most recently Sudan. Funds have helped build children's homes, care centers, and an infirmary, bore wells, provide high school tuition in Kenya and expand our new ministry to refugee children in Sudan.

Kids Alive International began in 1916 in Shantung Province, China, when missionaries Leslie and Ava Anglin began taking in homeless Chinese children.

From those humble beginnings, Kids Alive today has expanded worldwide, helping care for thousands of children through Residential Homes, Care Centers, and Schools.

And we reach even more children through medical clinics, community outreach programs, and - in special cases - disaster relief response. Through these various ministry efforts, orphans and abandoned children are being given education, clothing, healthy food, medical care, and - most importantly - the opportunity to know and serve Christ.

To reach children globally, Kids Alive has affiliate offices in the United Kingdom and Taiwan.
