Operation Kid-to-KidTM

Donate

Operation Kid-to-Kid is one of the world’s largest service mission projects for children.

International Christian organizations and Group’s Vacation Bible School programs team up to get kids involved with helping other kids. Kids have the opportunity to help other children around the world by giving gifts like school supplies, Bibles, hygiene kits, Christmas gifts, Bible coloring books, and socks and shoes. Children have also funded extensive malaria prevention and clean water initiatives in Africa and India!

Year after year, Operation Kid-to-Kid is one of the driving forces in mobilizing children to serve other kids in need. Each year millions of dollars are given by kids to help other kids in need.

2020: Give the gift of life-changing livestock!

Alpacas are uniquely created by God to live in the mountains of Ecuador! They help out in the garden by providing rich fertilizer for hungry plants. Their thick fur is sheared every year and provides warm clothes in the cold Andes climate. Because their feet are not hard like horse or cow hooves, they don’t compact the soil, and that’s good for farming and the environment. Alpacas help provide a critical source of income for many Ecuadorian families.

In 2020 Group Publishing and World Vision are partnering with VBS kids around the world to help bring alpacas to needy families in Ecuador. Adding an alpaca to a family farm in Ecuador not only transforms the fate of the family but also helps provide jobs and resources to the entire community! Each $10 donation through Operation Kid-to-Kid helps provide life-changing livestock to Ecuadorian families.

HOW IT WORKS WITH GROUP VBS 2020

  1. Order the Operation Kid-to-Kid Gracias Giving Pack Display (available at group.com) and set it up in a main gathering area at your church.
  2. Share how everyone can add to the alpaca’s pack with dollar bills, checks, even loose change.

2019: Give Babies in Zambia a Healthy Start!

2018 Operation Kid-to-Kid Overview

Growing God’s Love in Haiti

VBS kids really came through in support of the people of Haiti in 2018. Group’s VBS partnered with World Vision to help bring sustainable farming to this small island nation. With a population of almost 11 million people, Haiti is one of the poorest countries in the Western Hemisphere. Decades of deforestation have resulted in prolonged drought and poor soil conditions. The end result is over 26% of Haitian children under the age of 5 suffer from chronic malnutrition.

Generous donations from VBS kids around the world are starting to change that for the better! Your donations will help feed over 120,000 kids for a year and provide the foundation to feed families in Haiti for many years to come. Mr. Milius, a project partner with CASEC, expressed his great satisfaction saying, “I am very grateful for the support in transforming the lives of children and community development.”

Clean Water for Peru

The summer of 2017 saw millions of Group VBS kids across the country mobilize to help bring clean water to families in remote villages in Peru. VBS programs partnered with Operation Kid-to-Kid and Living Water International to help provide sustainable wells throughout Peru.

Vicente Tapia Hernandez, a resident of Puerto Requena, shared his excitement saying, “I thank God and [you] for bringing this project to us. Our village is 52 years old, and we never had a well before. Now, our children and their children will have clean water.”
