Keep a Child Alive (KCA) was founded in 2003 by AIDS activist Leigh Blake and 15-time Grammy Award-winner Alicia Keys, as an emergency push to get life-saving HIV medication to children needlessly dying of AIDS in Africa.
KCA’s mission is to improve the health and wellbeing of vulnerable children, youth, adults and families around the world, with a focus on combating the physical, social and economic impacts of HIV.
We are currently providing financial and programmatic support to 9 grassroots organizations in Kenya, Rwanda, South Africa, Uganda and India, serving over 120,000 people annually.
Keep a Child Alive is proud to participate in the TCS NYC Marathon!
