The children supported by Kids Inspire vary widely ? some have suffered trauma, neglect or abuse and as a direct result, may feel disconnected from society. Because their behaviour challenges teachers and support staff, these children are often labeled, neglected and are either not in education or are at risk of exclusion. Kids Inspire steps in by helping to heal the wounds of trauma and to reconnect these individuals with both themselves and society. By doing so, they aim to increase feelings of self-worth and prevent individuals from joining gangs or becoming involved in youth crime.
