About KIK

There are over two million orphans in Uganda and over 50% of Uganda’s population is under the age of 15. Many countries, including Uganda, in Africa have been ravaged and torn apart by AIDS and war leaving millions of innocent children on the streets and without a family. Many of these children find their way to the inner city and join a gang inside a ghetto just to survive. The streets are littered with abandoned and/or orphaned children. Many die from malnutrition and starvation. Others die from diseases such as malaria and typhoid. Their numbers are too great and yet they are an unnumbered population. They have become to their society, disposable. However, there are those who refuse to accept these facts as the only answer. Kids Inspiring Kids plans on “Inspiring Nations One Life at a Time”.

Vision:

Kids Inspiring Kids is a non-profit 501(c) 3 Corporation in the USA. The Parent Organization is The International Fellowship of Ministries. Kids Inspiring Kids can issue tax deductible receipts for any money or goods received.

June/July Updates

"My God! How little do my countrymen know what precious blessings they are in possession of, and which no other people on earth enjoy!" ~Thomas Jefferson

In 2005 Tomi Mills moved to Uganda to play a role in changing the lives of those around her. In 2006 Nicole Mills moved to Uganda with Tomi to help establish Kids Inspiring Kids. A few weeks later Uganda had a "democratic" election between the current president, Yoweri Museveni, and Kizza Besigye. It was the first multiparty election since Museveni had taken power in 1986. However, the elections turned violent with large demonstrations and rioting when Besigye was arrested for treason. Museveni ultimately and unconstitutionally won the 2006 elections.
The next Ugandan presidential election will take place in 2011. Demonstrations and riots have already started taking place in and around the capitol city of Kampala.
So, on this incredibly special day when the whole of America remembers and celebrates the birth of nation take a moment to be especially grateful for the freedoms you experience every day. They are unique and an unmeasurable gift. "It is easy to take liberty for granted, when you have never had it taken from you."

Sincerely,

Alfred:
Alfred has been one of the top leaders in the Kids Saturday Character Training Program for several years. He has a wonderful heart and is very faithful to the program. A few weeks ago he was in an auto accident bumped his head and wounded his hand. Unfortunately the "bump" on the head has proved more serious than originally thought. Since the accident he has been having issues functioning in even simple tasks. He is currently operating on the level of a three year old. Please keep him in your prayers that his mind returns to its natural state.

Angela:
KIK attributes this to Patience, Perseverance and Prayer!
3 years ago Angela came to KIK with a massive leg wound - a result of being HIV positive. KIK has prayed and helped take care of the wound ever since. After all this time Angela's leg is finally healed!

A Cow:
KIK's Ugandan administrator, has given KIK his milking cow for the village. This is an incredible gift as the cow is valued at over $500.00 USD.
