Backpack Program

School Supplies

Provides essential school supplies to underserved students each year. This initiative is more than just distributing materials; it’s about fostering a sense of readiness and confidence in students, ensuring they have the tools they need to thrive academically.

By equipping students with backpacks filled with notebooks, pencils, and other necessities, KKIS is helping to break down barriers to education and inspire a love for learning.

Scholarships

High School Scholarships

We provide scholarships to high school and university students. While each is different and supports different students, KKIS’s mission is the same.

We look for promising students who face financial challenges at home but qualify and want to complete their education. Some students just want to get a high school diploma while others want a more professional career and want to graduate with a college degree.

Mission

At KKIS (Keeping Kids in School), we believe that education reduces poverty, improves lives, and builds stronger communities. Recognizing that education is often unaffordable for many families in Mexico, we remove financial barriers to keeping kids in school.

Our programs provide financial assistance and help students develop essential language, life, and work skills. 

Our success is driven by the generous support of individuals and corporations who share our values and vision.

Through a combination of financial aid, community connections, and educational support, we achieve an impressive 86% high school graduation rate, compared to the national average of less than 50% throughout Mexico.

Vision

Improving lives through education. 

KKIS (Keeping Kids in School) works to build stronger communities in Playa del Carmen by eliminating financial obstacles to public education. We believe every child deserves the opportunity to learn and succeed, and we are dedicated to making education accessible and affordable for promising students in our community.
