Mission Statement

Liddle Kidz Foundation Global uses the power of touch to reach the world’s most vulnerable children with experiences of appropriate nurturing touch that they often lack.

With nurturing, compassion and touch therapy, children will develop and reach their full potential. We strive to address their critical tactile needs by working directly with their families and healthcare providers in pediatric hospitals, hospices, and orphanages to provide comprehensive nurturing services, consultation, education, program development and support. We are committed to furthering the development of touch therapy services for vulnerable and underserved populations internationally. Through education and support we work to create replicable and sustainable change.

Children are our greatest gift and should be treated with extraordinary care!

Description

Liddle Kidz Foundation volunteers work with orphanage, healthcare, childcare and residential settings worldwide on short-term assignments. During these volunteer programs, LKF Global volunteer ambassadors share their expertise to improve the lives of infants, children and their caregivers. Volunteer programs offer specific developmentally appropriate hands-on care for children and education for their caregivers.

Liddle Kidz Foundation volunteers come from all walks of life - men and women, massage therapists, bodyworkers, nurses, physicians, occupational therapists, physical therapists, speech language pathologists, recreation therapists, child life specialists, yoga practitioners and early intervention specialists (to name a few). They have in common a desire to share their experience, nurturing and care to provide the best start possible for children throughout the world. Learn how you can enjoy the most rewarding experience of a lifetime!

No, our volunteers come from all walks of life. Volunteers for any of our projects should have a genuine love of infants and children. Experience working with infants and children is valuable. Volunteers must be able to use their initiative and be motivated to work without guidance. Our volunteers should be patient, compassionate, resourceful, creative and imaginative. Specialized training in infant and pediatric massage will help ensure successful implementation of nurturing touch activities and programs
