The KKIS Board

The KKIS Board is made up of educators, artists and corporate types. We are hard headed optimists who believe that all children should have a minimum of 12 years of free education.

The future we envision for the children in Mexico is one where education is valued and affordable, and where the completion of high school and university becomes more common in the community.

 

IT WOULDN’T BE POSSIBLE WITHOUT YOU!

Keeping Kids in School would not be possible without our generous Sponsors and Donor organizations!
