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.
Join us on Wednesday, January 11 to meet Rotary Ambassadorial Scholar Ariel Hsieh.
My name is Yi-Ching Hsieh (Ariel) and I am the student at Columbia University Teachers College TCSOL program. I come from Taiwan. I am interested in Foreign Language Instruction and I have always wanted to be a teacher, because of my family influence and support. My mother is the manager of a private nursery school, she have been working there for more twenty years. My family has served many children who can’t afford to go to school and it strongly influenced me to follow in their footsteps. I wish one day, I could be a leader of an organization and increase the educational opportunities for children from low-income families. The following is my academic background.
