I BELIEVE IN EDUCATION
I’d like to Keep Kids in School with a financial contribution:
School Supplies: For Elementary Students
School supplies area a steppingstone to every child’s education. Having correct tools to do the work helps students excel at their highest potential with a smile on their face. Each backpack filled with a year’s worth of supplies only costs $25usd. Teachers tell us they spend class time away from teaching to find paper and pencils for the students to learn. Imaging going to class without a pencil!
English Classes: English Lessons
In the Riviera Maya, one of the most celebrated tourist destinations in all of Mexico, those entering the workforce who speak Spanish AND English will fare significantly better than those who speak only Spanish. For this reason, KKIS has committed to supercharging its English program. We offer all scholarship students 2 classes per week. Our cost is over $10,000 USD / year.
Tech Drive: Phone, Data, Laptops
Technology is a modern school supply – a required tool without which, learning is significantly limited. KKIS provides $10/month for phone data for our high school scholars and provides laptops to all new university scholars. All of us rely on hardware and software to communicate, calculate, and keep records. KKIS spends about $18,000 usd per year on technology. Help provide much needed technology.
