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.

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

Our strategy for implementation includes:
Preventive Programs: early intervention through education, meeting physical needs, and providing discipleship that promotes hope in difficult circumstances.
Strengthening Programs: ...when a child is at a higher level of risk or has experienced abuse. We promote healing through family strengthening, community awareness, social services, therapy, discipleship, and legal support.
Restorative Programs: ...(in collaboration with child protection systems) if a child must be legally removed from family or has no family option. These interventions focus on the rights of the child, holistic restoration, and a pathway to permanency in a family home.
Systems Programs: ...working with governments and like minded organizations to create more just and responsive systems for children, and to reduce violence and exploitation in communities
