Our impact initiative for long-term change and sustained growth

The idea of “thriving” is more than just alleviating the pain, hunger or thirst of a child who is orphaned, vulnerable or disabled. It’s helping children find hope through the love of God and discovering their own potential.

In impoverished countries and communities, children are often the most vulnerable population. Thriving Kids aims to provide the resources, support, and opportunities that children need. Our primary focus is on three basic elements: creating stable families, stable communities and a growing faith life.

Alongside our local ministry partners, and with the loving support of friends like you, we start by meeting critical needs such as clean water, nutritious food, safe shelter, medical care, education, economic opportunity, and also the love and care rooted in the truth of Jesus Christ.

Your generosity will enable us to create a new and promising future to needy children and their families.

Be God’s beacon of light and hope in this dark world of despair. Your gift will help create a better tomorrow for these desperate families. Answer their prayers for help by funding food distributions, educational opportunities, and access to medical care where they are needed most.

The strategic focus of the Thriving Kids initiative is meeting the urgent needs of orphaned and vulnerable children (water, food, shelter, healthcare), and giving them a hope and a future (gospel teaching, education, vocational training, and family support).

In partnership with you, these are a few examples of what we are able to do together:

FOOD
Feed hungry children and families in developing nations around the world in Jesus’ name.​
EDUCATION
Empower ministry partners to provide education programs for vulnerable children in different regions.
WATER
Provide aqueducts, wells, and water filtration systems in impoverished rural communities.​
HOUSING
Support ministries in developing countries to bless children and their families with sturdy new homes. ​
MEDICAL AID
Medical supplies, surgical equipment and other items to hospitals and clinics in vulnerable areas.
VULNERABLE CHILDREN
Help rescue vulnerable children from unimaginable suffering.
EMERGENCY RELIEF
Provide crisis response in emergency situations and for those who have been victimized or abused.
ECONOMIC EMPOWERMENT
Offer tools and micro-business training that ensure long-term solutions
THE GOSPEL
Share the Gospel in action and word, provide bibles in local languages, and Christian community.

Your generous gift will be used to support the Cross International project(s) indicated through June 30, 2023, the close of our ministry’s fiscal year. In the event that more funds are raised than needed to fully fund the initiative, the excess funds, if any, will be used to meet the most urgent needs of the ministry and may be used in the following fiscal year.
