Kids for Kids is a program that was created to teach children Christian values by serving others. In the experience of helping other children, each child becomes more aware of their own personal value, which reinforces their self-esteem. With this perfect exchange, both parties receive the benefits of giving and receiving.
Kids for Kids was first established in 1986. It began with 35 children of different practicing Christian faiths in the rural community of Panola County in East Texas. The children, ranging from 3 to 16 years of age, sang original Christian songs at fairs, festivals, churches and hospitals all over the Ark-La-Tex. Their unique musical performance included signing techniques for the hearing impaired.
In addition to performing, the original group of children raised money for St. Jude’s Hospital and sponsored a child, Hilda Morales in Central America in a program where letters were exchanged. The Kids for Kids Ministry also participated in a camp for “burn survivors” where they learned the value of being kind to children who are “different”.
We believe that our children can make a difference. The Kids for Kids songs have all been translated into Spanish with the intention of bonding with our Spanish speaking friends.
We would like to share this beautiful experience with your children. To learn more about how to have Miss Cindy bring the You Are Awe-sum self-esteem program to your children email us at [email protected]
