10 Years & Counting, The KKIS Project is Helping Students in Mexico Graduate

Too many children living in Mexico are not able to go to high school simply because they can’t afford it. KKIS is on a mission to change that! In 2021, KKIS turns 10 years old, and we aim to dramatically expand the number of high school and university graduates in Playa del Carmen.

I BELIEVE IN EDUCATION

so I’d like to Keep Kids in School with a financial contribution:

Food Supplies

Food Supplies (The KKIS Project)

The economic impact of the Covid-19 pandemic is tragically affecting those who are already just barely getting by in Playa del Carmen. Your gift today will provide food to KKIS Scholarship students and their families during this hard time.

Scholarships

Scholarships (The KKIS Project)

The opportunity for a child to go to school changes lives. As public high school education is not free in Mexico, your donation will ensure high performing, financially challenged students can graduate from high school and go on university.

School Supplies

School Supplies (The KKIS Project)
Give what every student needs; a back pack full of grade specific school supplies. Starting the year with supplies sets the student up for success, makes them sit taller in their seats and take pride in their schoolwork. You can help kids stay in school!

KKIS Tech Drive

Back to School during the pandemic means all classes will be held ONLINE creating another obstacle for students without computers or access to internet. Your donation will help buy laptops for students to use in the KKIS office.

The 1st KKIS-A-THON Virtual Fundraiser

The 1st KKIS-A-THON Virtual Fundraiser took place on April 17th at 6:00 p.m. and was filled with stories about the impact KKIS has had over the years thanks to all of our donors and featured exclusive videos from our students, volunteers, donors, and the KKIS Team.

We have 40 students graduating this year and 34 of them want to attend university. We would also like to replace the graduating high school students with first-year students just beginning their journey through high school and give school supplies to thousands of young students in need of essential tools for their education.

In total, our goal is to raise $220,000 USD, which will totally change the lives of these students.
