KKIS to Host 8th Annual Fundraising Event

Mark your calendars! On March 6, The KKIS Project will host its 8th Annual Fundraising Event at La Vagabunda Fiesta in Playa del Carmen. This Casino Night event, Betting on the Future, will feature casino tables, carnival games, a silent auction, an open taco bar, drinks and music. If you're going to be in town, this is a fantastic opportunity to help support this wonderful local non-profit.

Last year's fundraising event was a huge success, and instrumental in KKIS sending 78 students to high school and seven students to university, and providing school supplies to 2,402 students. This year, the organization hopes to provide school supplies to 3,000 students, 21 high school scholarships, and university scholarships to a select group of outstanding students.

About The KKIS Project

The KKIS Project is a registered Mexican nonprofit and a US 501c3 organization whose mission, since 2011, has been to provide the children of Playa del Carmen opportunities to progress through school with the tools that will help them succeed in this community.

KKIS provides school supplies to students in underprivileged neighborhoods, scholarships and mentors to talented but economically disadvantaged high school students, and volunteers to teach English in public high schools. KKIS envisions a future where every student graduates from high school and where educational challenge is inspiring and fun.

The organization works to motivate and assist public school administrators, teachers, students and parents through five programs that provide financial assistance, connections and support. The five KKIS Project programs are Supplies for Success, School Advocacy, Conversation Clubs, Scholarships and Mentors, and Connections. You can find out more about the programs here.
