Child Protection Policy
Kids Alive International takes the protection of children very seriously. We believe children have the right to a happy, healthy and secure childhood, and that child abuse in any form is an atrocity that is never acceptable.
Kids Alive International ensures that staff, missionaries, interns, volunteers, and Board members:
- are aware of the problem of child abuse
- are screened with thorough background checks
- safeguard children from abuse through the implementation of good practice
- report all concerns about possible abuse
- respond appropriately and quickly when abuse is discovered or suspected
Kids Alive International Sponsorship Program protects our children by:
- monitoring all correspondence sent by sponsors to the children for appropriate content
- performing random searches of potential child sponsors to insure that they are not listed on the U.S. sex offender website
- strictly limiting the distribution of health and family information that is personal and sensitive
- requesting our sponsors to handle the pictures and child information in a respectful, sensitive manner
- strongly discouraging sponsors from making direct contact with our children, their families, or people in their community outside of Kids Alive channels
