Heart for Kids serves in China, India and Indonesia

Heart for Kids began as ChinaHeart, helping orphans and kids living in poverty in China, around 2005. In 2014 we felt led to explore other areas. It was important to us to only serve where we felt called. Rather than opening new programs we considered partnering with local organisations already offering care and help to children. We looked for leaders of these organisations who also had a similar heart to ours to care for children in need. In 2016 we began serving in India and Indonesia as well as continuing the programs already underway in China.

This decision led to a change in name to clearly convey the message of what we are about and where our heart is. We decided on the name Heart For Kids. Under that umbrella name, we will have our country teams of ChinaHeart, IndiaHeart and IndonesiaHeart.

The work in each of these countries is slightly different, while still being at the heart of who we are. The founder of ChinaHeart, David, personally believes that no matter what country or what physical circumstances they are in, children deserve to know that they are loved and special. Not only to people around them but also to Jesus. They should have the opportunity to grow to be the person they were created to be.


We provide some foster apartments for babies and toddlers. There are also programs in orphanages for children and adults with special needs. Educational scholarships for children living in rural poverty are important as are some programs for the children of rural migrant workers. We take two or three volunteer teams each year to serve in these programs. Learn more…


With our partners we’re providing child development centres, women’s tailoring Schools and safe water for villages. Villages of between 1500 and 2000 people are being impacted by these programs. Learn more…


We are partnering to provide a safe home for young adults who have come to the city to gain their education, find employment and be taught and mentored in leadership roles. They come from extremely poor areas of NTT. We’re also helping children growing up in urban slum villages who don’t get much education. Our Kids Clubs are giving them afternoon programs where they learn in a loving environment. Learn more…

Many children growing up in the shadow of abandonment feel forgotten but we work hard to try and make sure this is not the feeling of the children in the Heart For Kids family. We want them to have hope for their future and let them know they can rise above their beginnings. People value them and are there to help. More…
