KIM – Kids in Ministry SA

What if children started living with purpose and passion, embracing the role they need to play in their community? You can see this happen!

Are you frustrated by self-entitled, easily manipulated youth? Then, you can be the change!

What if children started living with purpose and passion, embracing the role they need to play in their community and stepping up to lead with compassion in a hurting society, a voice of reason in times of chaos.

“We worry about what a child will become tomorrow, yet we forget that he is someone today.” – Stacia Tauscher

We create a safe environment for children to:

Discover their godly identity and intimacy with their heavenly Father.

Find healing and restoration in a world where parents are absent and hurt.

Be equipped to stand on God’s Word in modern society.

Be empowered to BE the change where they are.


“Train up a child in the way he should go, And when he is old he will not depart from it.” – Proverbs 22:6

We have taken thousands of children through this process since 2006. We have seen children’s demeanour change from shy and broken to confident, inspiring leaders. They take responsibility for their calling and purpose and step up to “Be the Change” in their community. We have seen not only families but also communities being impacted through this process.

You can contribute to this process by:

Sponsoring a child for the process.

Giving towards resources for the camps.

Give your time to be part of the impact.

Target Groups: Parents and children
Influenced Countries: South Africa
