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”.


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.

Lira- Rebuilding After the War

Recently, Kids Inspiring Kids as well as an American volunteer, Jeff, traveled to Lira in Northern Uganda. While they were there they met some amazing people who will become an integral part of helping the people in the Banda Acholi Quarters. A counselor will be coming to the Quarters next month to help the people with PTSD from all of the trauma they have suffered. We are very excited to partner with amazing locals. 

These women will come to the Banda Quarters to council our people with PTSD

"The Lord’s Resistance Army has been fighting the Government of Uganda since the mid-1980s. In all, the conflict is estimated to have killed tens of thousands and forced nearly 2 million Ugandans to flee their homes, while also spilling over into Southern Sudan and the Democratic Republic of the Congo." - UN.org
"The first major step forward came in August 2006 when the two sides signed a cessation of hostilities agreement which has since been converted into a formal ceasefire...This was followed in mid-2007 by the signing of agreements setting out the broad contours of a final settlement based on comprehensive solutions to the conflict – including measures to address the economic, political and social difficulties in northern Uganda, as well as a set of principles on human rights, accountability and reconciliation." -UN.org
