Maison Ke Kontan (Hime For Help) is based on the belief that every child has inherent dignity and worth and deserves to lead a happy life, full of love and understanding. Your gift of sponsorship gives the children at Ke Kontan access to everything they need to ensure a healthy and successful start to their lives: A strong faith, a nurturing atmosphere, proper nutrition, medical care, clothing, education, and hygiene, which helps us to provide the best environment for our children to grow and learn.
HOW IT WORKS
Each child in Ke Kontan is eligible for any of our sponsorship programs. Our sponsorship plans are designed to accommodate a range of donor commitments from basic, school sponsorship, extended, and plus sponsorship where donors can fully and exclusively support a child at Ke Kontan. Your donations for your child are combined with the gifts of other sponsors and donors – rather than just being given directly to your sponsored child – to support programs that help make life better for all children at Ke Kontan.
Currently, we offer 4 levels of sponsorship:
Basic Sponsorship ($35/month or $420/year)- Your contributions are combined with other sponsors to help support 1 child at Ke Kontan.
Your sponsorship helps provide your child with education, clothing, hygiene products, 3 meals a day, and medical treatment
Extended Sponsorship ($70/month or $840/year)- Your contributions are combined with other sponsors to help support 1 child at Ke Kontan.
Your sponsorship helps provide your child with clothing, 3 meals a day, medical treatment and gives them the opportunity to attend school and purchase school uniforms, supplies, and books.
Plus Sponsorship ($420/month or $5040/year)
You are the only sponsor for your child at Ke Kontan.
Your sponsorship helps provide your child with clothing, 3 meals a day, medical treatment and gives them the opportunity to attend school and purchase school uniforms, supplies, and books and also covers any extra circular activities with the children (including dance class).
*Education in Haiti is a privilege, not a right. What this means is that without a source of funding, children in Haiti simply cannot attend school. Sponsoring a child helps us offset the costs of what should be a universal human right. Providing the children of Haiti with an education is the only way we can help to empower the Haitian people and enable them to access opportunities they otherwise would never be able to consider.
At Ke Kontan, we believe one of the most important things for a child to develop in a healthy way is a sense of self-worth and value. We encourage you to develop a personal relationship with your child. You are encouraged to exchange photos and letters with your child, as well as be included in significant life events such as birthdays, holidays, and other achievements and highlights from your child’s life.
As a donor, you are encouraged to write letters and emails to your sponsored child. As we believe strongly in developing cross-cultural relationships in our very global world, you will also receive correspondence from the child you sponsor along with email newsletters from our staff in Haiti. We seek to develop genuine and authentic relationships between our children and those who sponsor them so that both child and donor can see the benefits of our sponsorship program.
