Kids Around the World, Inc. (KIDS) is a faith-based 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization dedicated to helping children and families who have been affected by war, poverty, illness, and natural disasters. Our home office is in Rockford, Illinois and our goal is to reach children around the world with the message of God’s love for them. We accomplish this by:
- Building playgrounds where children can enjoy being a kid. Research has also shown that playground activities are essential for children’s proper physical, emotional, spiritual, and cognitive development.
- Teaching Christian education workers how to develop better Bible lessons. We use storyboards we have created as a visual aid in the lesson development and instruct the teachers on ways to involve the children in the lesson activities.
- Provide nutritious meals for children. We package food casseroles which are a rice and soy mix fortified with 21 vitamins and minerals, 6 dehydrated vegetables, and chicken flavoring. The ingredients are recognized and accepted world wide and preparation only involves cooking with boiling water.
