Kids Connection Haïti


KIDS CONNECTION HAITI

Kids Connection Haiti is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. KCH was founded to help unprivileged youth by creating life changing opportunities. Where lots of organizations help orphaned, abandoned and poor little kids, many older ones -teenagers and young adults- have no way out of poverty. 

Focusing on post-orphanage services, KCH provides support for the next step in life and by doing so we offer a unique, innovative program that will help young Haitians close the gap between childhood and independent, adult life. 

KCH believes in the potential of young adults and especially acknowledges the difficult positions those youth are in, after they leave their orphanage. This is the moment that will decide whether they will be a gangster or a carpenter, a beggar or a banker. KCH empowers young adults to make the right choice, giving them the chance to create more stable, hopeful and financially independent futures.

The KCH local program coordinator is located in Port-au-Prince, the capital of Haiti, and provides the young men and women with mentoring, financial support and follow up services. Every KCH student is required to give back to the community by helping others in need through organized volunteer work. The KCH students attend various levels of education; university, high school, and vocational education, as well as micro business training. The program consists of a wide range of support;

~ completion of formal education;

~ life skills education;

~ long term mentoring;

~ emergency support;

~ professional career development training;

~ social safety net.

OUR MISSION

To empower orphans in Haiti to become contributing, self sufficient members within their communities through education, life skills training, community service, mentorship and career development.
