Konbit Pou Edikasyon “Working Together for Education”

Thank you to Marlynne Bidos for presenting at last week’s meeting about Konbit Pou Edikasyon.
Konbit Pou Edikasyon “Working Together for Education” (KPE) was born in response to the problem of child domestic servitude in Haiti. The group became aware of children’’s vulnerability to domestic servitude when it traveled to Haiti on a mission trip in 2008 to sponsor a boys soccer team from Cité Soleil. To prevent children from becoming domestic servants, KPE began providing education, health, and emergency assistance for nine at-risk children. Today, through the generous support of donors, KPE supports students from four neighborhoods in Haiti.

Their Vision
KPE envisions that all Haitian children will have the means to access educational and social opportunities that empower them to fulfill their highest academic potential and become catalysts for the advancement of their communities.
Core Values
All children have rights including the right to equitable and accessible education.
Education provides the tools to overcome adversity.
Fostering personal relationships with Konbit Kids builds support systems, drives motivation, and ultimately leads to academic excellence.
All Konbit kids can achieve at high levels. We support all Konbit Kids’ efforts to discover their individual goals.
KPE is accountable to Konbit Kids and their families, their communities, our donors, and our partners.
Familial and community engagement is vital. The community holds the knowledge, power, and responsibility for the progress of each Konbit Kid.
