Kids to Kids Project Guides
Kids to Kids projects offer hands-on ways for kids to help other kids — here in the U.S. and around the world. Each project is designed around a different theme and includes educational resources, concrete mission ideas, and kid friendly explanations of difficult topics like hunger, poverty, immigration, human trafficking, and others. These projects help kids process stories they may hear in the news and enable them to show God’s love to those in need.
