In any particular community, the number of children who can live at a Kids Alive residential home is naturally limited. This means there are always other at-risk children who still live with their families – stuck in the devastating cycle of poverty. In poor countries, it’s hard enough for a family to survive when the father is working. But too often, fathers die from sickness, accidents or war, or simply abandon their families. Women who are widowed or abandoned have few job opportunities, and even fewer government assistance programs. It can become virtually impossible to feed and care for their children.
For this reason, we provide many of the same services — healthy meals, basic medical care, spiritual guidance and education — to non-residential children through our Care Centers. These services especially assist fragile families by helping single mothers or grandmothers protect their children and reverse the cycle of hopelessness and poverty.
