I spent a week in Haiti volunteering with KCH with my 16 yr old in June and it was the trip of a lifetime. The local coordinator guided us each day through the towns via tap tap so we could experience the daily life of Haitians in their efforts to survive and thrive. The simple idea of providing tuition, uniforms, and other supplies or necessities, as well as connections for networking for jobs, is brilliant and very, very practical. We are now sponsoring a student whom we met during workshops I taught on resilience for the students. The entire program offers a platform to mentor every person involved. We plan to go back as often as possible. The entire group was so warm, gracious, and eager. Astrid Fitzgerald is the real deal: selfless, realistic, and undaunted. I would do anything I could for them.

I like to get involved with nonprofits where the founder is not just passionate about a cause, but also has a sharp focus and smart administration. I'm a huge fan of Kids Connection Haiti - and donate regularly -- because it zeroes in on a group that is often overlooked: older orphans who don't have the family supports to help them become economically independent. KCH offers financial tuition support, life skills training, and business mentoring, and fills the gap that these young people need in order to stand up on their own two feet. Founder Astrid Fitzgerald lived in Haiti for years, so she knows the society well and is realistic about her goals. She puts every penny towards the kids, runs her operation on a shoe string, and is wisely trying to grow the organization slowly and methodically. As a donor, I became a sponsor to a young woman who is nursing school, and received a letter from her, in addition to updates from Astrid, so I know exactly where and to whom my donations are going. I'm really proud to support Kids Connection Haiti, and I hope more people can become supporters!

I am volunteering with Kids Connection Haiti and it is life-changing. Kids Connection Haiti is focusing on post orphanage services, offers technical advice and financial support for education and livelihoods, contributing to sustainable, independent lives. I am working from the DC office and support the organization in various fields to grow and support the Haitian based initiatives including research, logistics, sponsorship management, fundraising and general office/administrative. My work is exciting and very rewarding. The Kids Connection Haiti team is very passionate, energetic and dedicated and it is such a great feeling to be part of it and knowing that our work is changing the lives of many kids and young adults in Haiti.
