Review for KIDS CONNECTION HAITI INC , Washington, DC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

The efforts of everyone involved at Kids Connection Haiti, especially the students themselves, inspire me each day to do more myself each day. I've been involved with KCH since just after the earthquake in Haiti in 2010. Since then, I've seen volunteers give their heart and sole in Haiti to advance our programs in very difficult working and living conditions. I've seen others volunteering in the United States and Canada also giving their time, money and energy to a cause that has earned their respect. The students themselves overcome great adversity each day just getting to and from school in the heat and the dust and studying in their noisy and often dark neighbourhoods.

These people inspire me to keep giving myself. Many agencies and organizations offer help to the children of Haiti but KCH offers economic self-sufficiency to young adults – those who can make an immediate and real impact on the lives of their entire family in the very short term. The KCH formula shows results quickly and impacts an entire community of family and friends. When one person in a community secures employment, the entire community benefits almost immediately. I'm proud to be part of it.
