We have learned a great deal over the years and have launched programs that work together to support and encourage education from primary school through university. The program which has the most tangible results of course is our Scholarship Program.
High school scholarships cost $600 USD per year and university scholarships are on average $1,750 USD per year. In both cases, KKIS assigns students to sponsors (or sponsoring organizations) and provide periodic updates throughout each year.
We are particularly interested in promoting our university scholarship program this year because our high school program is graduating many students who want to go on to university! Three year commitments are also appreciated i.e., a lump sum donation may be designated for 3 years, in which case we segregate money required for the upcoming school year and put the balance in our reserve fund.
Individuals wishing to donate and to receive tax deductible receipts can do so via the KKIS website. We are set up to facilitate many people giving under one organizing group or individual. It’s super easy to set up – the campaign is called Betting on the Future. Each person who donates receives a tax deductible receipt and the organization receives recognition for their role facilitating.
Scholarship recipients are chosen based on a combination of grade point average and the financial need of the student. In collaboration with the KKIS Project, all scholarship students are assigned a mentor who is a Spanish speaking individual who tracks the students progress, provides guidance and positive reinforcement.
While 12 years of education in Mexico is compulsory, the average number of education is only 9 years. Students who want to go on to high school need to pay for an entrance exam, school fees, transportation and uniform costs. Public education is not a perfect system in any country, but we believe all children should have access to at least 12 years of education regardless of their economic situation.
Donations of all sizes help and contribute to the success of the scholarship program. Make a difference today and ask how your donation can help.
