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”.

Through our volunteers and partners, we have had several kids directly involved in impacting our vision here in Uganda. This coming month we want to spotlight kids in the community under 18yrs old that want to make an impact with KIK. There are a lot of ways they can accomplish this:
One easy way to get your kids involved is Chores for Charity. For one month instead of paying out cash for chores around the house, fill a KIK Charity jar. At the end of the month send us the final amount labeled Chores for Charity and we will individually recognize each kid personally with a thank you card and photo from Uganda.
Challenge your kids to go above and beyond this next month. Show them that every little bit matters and counts when it comes to impacting the world around them.
