Who are we?
Paradise 4 Kids (P4K) was first established in 1991, in the Gold Coast, Australia (formerly known as Paradise Kids 4 Africa) as a branch from a charity based on the Gold Coast, Paradise Kids.
It was formed primarily to fund and support the works of Reverend Themi in Africa and also to assist other missionaries in their calling from God.
Since those days, other like minded people wanted to help, and we began to grow and grow.
What are we?
We are bonafide Charities, spanning over 4 continents; Australia, the United States, the United Kingdom and the European Union, we act as one, abiding by Tax Laws in our individual home states. (Accreditation)
The Biblical word Charity means “the highest form of love, signifying the reciprocal love between God and man that is made manifest in unselfish love of one’s fellow man and women; To Give without expectation; To Give without acknowledgement; To Give without return.
With committees all around the world, P4K have set themselves apart by being an entirely voluntary organisation with no one receiving remuneration. Our volunteers are groups of ordinary people coming together to make a positive difference to those who may never have the opportunity otherwise.
Some call themselves Christians, others humanitarians, but all are looking to make every cent raised, reach the people it is intended to, with accountability & transparency.
What we want from you?
We know and understand that in this world everyone is asking you to reach into your pocket.
Everyday someone somewhere wants you to help them; always asking you to donate to their cause; if it’s not your children’s school, it’s your children; if it’s not your local Club, it’s your Church.
With no wages, no expenses, 96% of every dollar donated is forwarded to our projects.
With as little as $20 dollars, euros or pounds, we can feed, educate and clothe up to 4 children a month.
Less than the cost of a cup of coffee a week, can help keep Orphans in a loving home, keep children in school, keep the poor & forgotten off the streets from begging. Providing the foundation for a better future for those who have none.
Why are we?
The Final Judgment
Mat 25:31 “When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, he will sit on his throne in heavenly glory.
Mat 25:32 All the nations will be gathered before him, and he will separate the people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats.
Mat 25:33 He will put the sheep on his right and the goats on his left.
Mat 25:34 “Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world.
Mat 25:35 For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in,
Mat 25:36 I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.’
Mat 25:37 “Then the righteous will answer him, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink?
Mat 25:38 When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you?
Mat 25:39 When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?’
Mat 25:40 “The King will reply, ‘I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.’
Mat 25:41 “Then he will say to those on his left, ‘Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels.
Mat 25:42 For I was hungry and you gave me nothing to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me nothing to drink,
Mat 25:43 I was a stranger and you did not invite me in, I needed clothes and you did not clothe me, I was sick and in prison and you did not look after me.’
Mat 25:44 “They also will answer, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or needing clothes or sick or in prison, and did not help you?’
Mat 25:45 “He will reply, ‘I tell you the truth, whatever you did not do for one of the least of these, you did not do for me.’
Mat 25:46 “Then they will go away to eternal punishment, but the righteous to eternal life.”
On that day we want to be Sheep!
95%+ of your donations reach those in need.
Since P4K was first established, we have worked hard to make sure that all resources entrusted to us are used as efficiently and effectively as possible, and thanks to our generous volunteers, we can maintain that no less than 95% of all funds collected go to approved charitable works. Of that 95%, 10% remains within our respective countries to help children in need. The remaining 5% goes towards accounting fees, audit fees, and bank and transfer fees.
Accountability and transparency is of the utmost importance at P4K, which is why your donations are sent to and dispersed by our trusted mission beneficiaries who send monthly financial and photographic reports. P4K pays no salaries, operates no offices and owns no property. This means more of your donation goes directly to those in need.
Frequently Asked Questions
How does P4K decide which missions to fund?
In our pursuit for worthy missions, we have found over time that those who suit our criteria best were men and women of faith; people who followed a code of practice more important than image, ego, and even their own lives. Many of these men and women once lived in a world of plenty, but left these comforts to live and work in the same surroundings as the ones we look to help. This is why people support P4K and our missions.
Is P4K a Christian organisation?
Why is charity important?
Of all the times Jesus speaks of compassion to the poor and downtrodden, none is more compelling than the parable of The Sheep and the Goats. Jesus describes the actions of those welcomed into his Father’s kingdom and ends with, “Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.” Being close to Christ means being close to the poor, and this is why at P4K, we do what we do. Charity is giving with no return, no profit, no recognition; giving with absolutely no benefit except the promised reward from God Himself.
Does any member of P4K receive remuneration?
What is Rev Themi’s role in P4K?
Not all P4K members in Australia, USA, UK, Africa or PNG are Christians, but every member is fully committed to supporting Rev Themi’s and all our causes, in their efforts and we have complete confidence in their stewardship and unquestionable characters.
