KCA. - Keep a Child Alive


Alyscia Cunningham


Keep a Child Alive (KCA) was founded in 2003 by AIDS activist Leigh Blake and Alicia Keys, as an emergency push to get life-saving HIV medication to African children and families, who otherwise would not have had access to treatment.

13 years on, KCA continues to fight HIV and AIDS on the front lines. Their work has grown to include the critical components necessary to support successful, life-long HIV treatment: comprehensive clinical care, nutritious food and psychosocial support, all delivered with compassion, dignity and respect. KCA now provides financial and programmatic support to seven grassroots programs in Kenya, Rwanda, South Africa, Uganda and India, serving more than 89,000 people annually.
