Uplifting children with love
Lifting Up is a non-profit child advocacy organization in Wichita, Kansas that has worked persistently for 30 years to cater to the needs of the most underprivileged children. We generate programs that improve the quality of life of children living in poverty, ensure their access to effective education and health care and most importantly, build the core of these children through moral and spiritual foundation. Supported by schools, churches, businesses and individual donations, Lifting Up advocates nationwide on behalf of poor children to ensure that they are never neglected.
Lifting Up Mission Statement
Lifting Up’s mission is to enhance the quality of life of impoverished children by providing their basic needs and building their core in moral and spiritual values. We aim to expand opportunities for these children and create lasting changes in their lives.
We live in a nation where 14.3% of U.S households – a total of 15.8 million children – struggle to even get food on their plate. That is only one of the facts that strengthen our goal to improve the lives of underprivileged children. In 30 years, Lifting Up has changed the lives of more than 400,000 children through feeding and providing quality education and informal care. We have opened doors of opportunities to almost 55,000 students who cannot afford to continue education through scholarship programs. Our organization composed of 2,000 staff and volunteers have been working relentlessly in keeping our programs running across the poorest communities. We aspire to grow more and expand our reach to achieve our dream of ending child poverty.
