Every Child Deserves an Education
Many students living in Mexico do not attend public high school because there is a cost.
It costs less than $2 USD per day to provide a year education to these promising students. ✨
Join KKIS donors and volunteers who are working to expand the number of high school and university graduates in the Riviera Maya! 🇲🇽
Improving lives through education by keeping kids at school.
Education reduces poverty, improves lives, and builds better communities. For many families in Mexico education is not affordable. KKIS keeps kids in school by removing financial barriers.
We also help kids develop their language, life and work skills. Our success is made possible by generous donations of time and money from individuals and corporations who share our values and vision.
KKIS programs combine financial assistance, community connections and educational support to produce an 86% high school graduation rate vs the standard of less than 50%.
