Kids for Kids

KIDS FOR KIDS aims to help children living in remote villages in Darfur, Sudan who live lives of inexcusable hardship and to give them the chance of a better life. We seek to enable families to stay in their villages in the midst of the conflict by helping to improve their lives and livelihoods and lifting them out of poverty. Our long-term aim is to give Darfur a chance by sustaining villages as vibrant institutions - without this people living in the camps will have nothing to return to once peace is restored.
Children face starvation in Darfur now - urgent
Kids for Kids helps children and families in Darfur living in remote villages in the desert. The UN recently reported 30% of children are acutely malnourished. Many are starving now. We can help to stop this: Our simple grassroots projects - goat loans, donkeys, water from hand pumps, training midwives and first aid workers, providing blankets, mosquito nets, Kindergartens and more - lifts families out of desperate poverty and transforms the lives of whole communities. Please help. project reportread updates from the field
Kindergartens for Vulnerable Children in Darfur
Mothers in Darfur, busy with their daily tasks, have little time for active engagement with their small children. The lack of mental stimulation during these crucial formative years diminishes the development potential of the children forever. 98% of mothers in Darfur are illiterate. They begged us to help educate their children. Our first kindergarten opened in the village of Abu Nahla in December 2013, In 2014, we hope to build 3 more. Education is the way out of poverty - please help! project reportread updates from the field
Goats and Donkeys Transform Lives in Darfur
In Darfur children are dying of starvation. Drought, prolonged violence and soaring inflation are devastating lives. Our Goat Loans and Donkeys have been transforming lives for 14 years, giving nutrition to children and income to pay for medicines, food, schooling and emergencies. We have already raised over $32,000 via Global Giving for this but more is needed urgently. In 2014 we adopted 5 villages and in 2015 we will adopt 5 more, bringing our total to 75 villages, and they need help urgently project reportread updates from the field
Water - the gift of life - for children in Darfur
As you read this, children in Darfur villages in Sudan are walking for hours across the desert in search of water. They are missing school, childhood, and are in danger of being attacked on their journey as violence increases in Darfur. There is water, but it is underground - if only families could afford a hand pump. The children at the International School in Brooklyn, New York, are determined to help. They are leading the way with their sponsored Walk for Water - Please will you help too? project reportread updates from the field
Save women and children from dying during birth
The baby in the picture is tiny and you would guess that she was a new born. She is not, she is 18 months old but malnutrition has taken its toll. There is a chance she will die. Our midwives and health workers, plus the addition of our nutritional goat's milk, can help. We train village girls to become community midwives in our training school. They leave their villages and travel to the city for a 10 month training course. When they return they help new mothers in their own villages. project reportread updates from the field
Hope for children who have never had a home
Families in Darfur have fled their villages with nothing and now they want to leave the IDP camps to give a home and a future to their children. Visionary leaders in Kids for Kids Villages are welcoming these families, many of different tribes from their own, so they can rebuild a new life for their children. They are providing land to new families and helping to build huts, but cannot do more, and the families come with nothing. We are asking help to provide the basic essentials for survival. project reportread updates from the field
Improving children's health in villages in Darfur
Providing blankets and mosquito nets to 200 poor families in villages in Darfur to reduce the risk of children dying from malaria and acute respiratory infections bought about by deadly mosquitoes and cold desert nights. In Darfur families struggle to provide even the most basic of items due to rising inflation and harsh living conditions. This project helps families to protect their offspring from the hazards of the desert. project reportread updates from the field
***Urgent Appeal*** Jerry Cans for water
Many families in the remote villages of Darfur have been forced to flee their homes in recent weeks. They have lost everything. They cannot even collect water. Please can you help by donating jerry cans urgently? People need a minimum of 15 litres a day for drinking, cooking and washing. Without a jerry can, collecting enough water to survive is a huge challenge. Imagine the thirst in somewhere as hot as Darfur? $10 buys 2 Jerry Cans and gets them to the people who need them. Thank You. project reportread updates from the field
Eggs to feed hungry Grandmothers in Darfur
This Easter, please give a Chicken not an Egg! Give a chicken to a Grandmother in Darfur and she will be healthy. Whilst our Goat Loans work miracles for children, herding a flock is too much for frail older people to manage, and so Kids for Kids provides chickens - easy to look after and the eggs are a brilliant source of protein. Reports are coming through loud and clear - Chickens transform lives. Grandma Afaf said: "For the first time in months I am eating good food" project reportread updates from the field
Will children stand a chance of survival in 2015?
To survive in Darfur, you have to have a successful harvest. The rain didn't come early this year, it is too late for the planting of millet, the staple crop, which needs three months growing time to produce a harvest. This means farmers must have sorghum seeds, but few have. We urgently need to provide seeds for the hardest hit villages in the north of Darfur. We aim to provide 3 kgs per family and this year we urgently need help for a minimum of 262 families so that they won't starve in 2015 project reportread updates from the field
