Mission Statement

The most magical sound in the world is that of a child's laughter.

That is what fills the air at Give Kids The World Village--a wish-fulfilling, fanciful, carefree retreat for children with life-threatening illnesses, and their families.

Give Kids The World Village is a 70-acre, non-profit "storybook" Village located near Central Florida's most beloved attractions. Here, children and their families are treated to weeklong, cost-free fantasy vacations, complete with accommodations in the Village's whimsical villas, transportation, donated attraction tickets, meals, and much more.

At the Village, these precious children learn that dreams really do come true, as they and their families are immersed in joy, hope, and non-stop fun for a few unforgettably happy days. Since 1989, the Village has hosted more than 120,000 deserving families from all 50 states and more than 70 countries.

This extraordinary, life-changing experience is Give Kids The World's gift, made possible only through the generosity of dedicated corporations and countless individuals.

GKTW Village is amazing for the children and families who stay there; they have thought of everything!! There's something fun to do all the time, and so much to look at; the architecture is perfect for kids. Greeting the families when they first arrive at the airport is so much fun, they are so excited! The looks on their faces are precious, and so are they. Come join us, it's a great volunteer job!!!

Very rewarding to assist the Make A Wish children and families who come to Central Florida and stay at Give Kids the World.
