CAMBRIDGE, Ont. — A donation from CarriersEdge has allowed Kids Alive International (KAI) release its Online Global Policy Manual, a tool that will help the organization train its field staff at missions around the world. KAI is a non-profit organization providing Christian care to children at risk around the world. The Online Global Policy Manual is the first program of its kind in the North American non-profit community, KAI officials said.

KAI programs rescue suffering children-in-crisis all over the world, operating in more than a dozen developing countries such as Zambia, Kenya, Peru, and Myanmar. Since its founding in 1916, KAI has helped thousands of children through its homes, care centres, and schools, with aggressive plans for growing those operations in the coming years.

The Online Global Policy Manual will help ensure the quality and consistency of field operations staff at KAI’s missions around the world, company officials said. CarriersEdge designed and developed the program, donating more than 1,000 hours of effort over 18 months.

“Kids Alive International was looking for a way to provide a compelling, effective educational experience to our field staff around the world, said Scott Forbes, executive director of Kids Alive International Canada. “With their donation of time to build this program, CarriersEdge has given us an outstanding tool for supporting our growth and we’re grateful for their generous gift.”

The KAI Online Global Policy Manual will be used as the foundation of training programs for existing staff and new hires at KAI ministries around the world. Portions of the program will also be provided through the KAI Web site, helping to educate prospective missionaries as well.

“Kids Alive International provides a tremendously valuable service to children in need around the world, said Mark Murrell, president of CarriersEdge. “They’ve shown exceptional vision by adopting online tools for this program and we’re extremely pleased to be able to support them.”
