Message from Astrid, Founder Kids Connection Haiti
I am so proud of the ten KCH students who graduated this year. The nurses Sandy, Lounechy and Senise. The accountants Chardley and Carine. Event coordinator Roudeline, tailor Amos, mechanic Frantz, police man R (who wants to stay anonymous), and chemical scientist Esnel. Boom!
THAT IS SUCCESS.
Ten young adults, who are now at the beginning of a new life. Eager to bloom. With diploma in hand, the future looks bright. You, my friend, have played an essential role in their success. Your generosity and your kindness has turned multiple lives completely upside-down… in a good way! Let’s do this again. Let’s do it more. Let’s fight harder. These young men and women inspire me to no end. Something good is happening… and I want you on my side.
I COMMIT TO GROW KCH FROM 30 TO 100 STUDENTS BEFORE THE END OF 2018.
That is my commitment and nothing is going to stop me! There is a huge need in Haiti (40% illiteracy, 40% unemployment, 60% living in poverty), and there are many, many, many young adults impatiently waiting for a chance to change their destiny and the dynamic of their communities. I know we can do it. All I need is you on my side. Can I count on your help?
LET’S SPREAD LOVE. COMPASSION. KINDNESS.
Astrid de Vries
