Living in Mexico has taught me many lessons. Perhaps one of the most important lessons learned here is the value of community and giving back.
I have met incredible people here in Mexico. People who are inspired to help, give back to the community, and make a difference.
One such group is the folks over at a non-profit organization in Playa del Carmen, The KKIS Project (Keep Kids in School).
The KKIS Project provides financial assistance, community connections, and educational opportunities, improving lives through education by keeping kids in school.
Education reduces poverty, improves lives, and builds better communities. For many families in Mexico, education is not affordable. KKIS keeps kids in school by removing financial barriers. KKIS also helps kids develop their language, life, and work skills.
The KKIS Project’s success is made possible by generous donations of time and money from individuals and corporations who share their values and vision.
KKIS provides scholarships for public high school and university students. KKIS believes in public education. It is not a perfect system in any country, but KKIS believes all children should have access to 12 year education.
KKIS scholarships keep students in school – students who, despite their good grades, were at risk of not continuing high school or college simply for economic reasons.
“KKIS has one mission: to change lives through education. As parents struggle to pay school expenses in Mexico, KKIS provides high school and university scholarships, English classes, and connections to the community through various programs. The team is fantastic, the work rewarding, and living in Riviera Maya is a dream come true.”Kelly Caldwell, The KKIS Project, Board Secretary
Dynamic Nonprofit Web Design for KKIS Provides Unparalleled Community Engagement
From amazing healers and creative entrepreneurs to small businesses and nonprofits, I have had the pleasure of working with some amazing clients. The KKIS Project is one such client.
Rethinking the user experience and the site’s overall strategy from the ground up, Jason Samadhi provided redesigned and rebuilt a modern, user and mobile-friendly WordPress-powered website.
The refreshed website focuses on increased conversion with a strong call to action to drive traffic to the organization’s fundraising efforts.
A good, well-thought-out, and well-designed website can be a powerful tool in helping an organization build brand awareness.
KKIS has worked hard over the last twelve years to keep kids in school in Playa del Carmen and the Riviera Maya.
Much more than just a design refresh, the new website is a powerful tool that has opened up unique and new channels of opportunity for KKIS’ marketing efforts—including the ability to reach what we hope to be an ever-growing audience.
Featuring enterprise-level security and optimized performance enhancements with WP Engine managed WordPress hosting, the new site leverages modern SEO (search engine optimization) and conversion tools (Such as RankMath Pro for SEO and FluentCRM).
FluentCRM is a self-hosted email marketing and automation platform built-in directly into WordPress and is a game-changer for how KKIS engages with its audience.
As well, because it’s a self-hosted platform, FluentCRM helps KKIS avoid the rising costs of third-party services like Mailchimp, SalesForce, and SharpSpring.
And unlike those third-party services, all of their contact management, email creation marketing strategy, sales funnels, and landing pages are all in one place—inside the website!
While not visible to the general public, Jason Samadhi recently worked with The KKIS Project to develop and design dynamic, database-driven, student profiles.
With the easy-to-update student dynamic profiles, gives KKIS an unprecedented opportunity to connect and engage with student scholarship sponsors in new and exciting ways.
The new student profiles allow KKIS to easily update sponsors each quarter, providing real-time updates on their scholarship students’ progress.
Combined with the power of FluentCRM, the dynamic student profiles for scholarship sponsors give the KKIS Project an unparalleled and powerful platform for ongoing engagement with sponsors, student advisors, and the entire Riviera Maya community.
“What I appreciate most about Jason, beyond the fact that he is extraordinarily talented in every aspect of web design – aesthetics, methods, strategies and all things SEO – is that he is a delight to work with. He listens, is kind, attentive and thoughtful. He knows the value of his work and is fair with his pricing. I like that.”Kelly Caldwell, The KKIS Project, Board Secretary
Deliver the Magic of Hope, Help KKIS Keep Kids in School
Belief is a powerful thing. And sometimes, the most challenging thing any of us can do is to simply believe in ourselves.
The kind of work The KKIS Project is doing empowers students, enriches their lives, and delivers the magic of hope! Believing in themselves is a lot more tangible when students feel valued and can make a contribution.
In helping others to believe in themselves, especially our future generations, empowering them to see what’s possible in their own lives, we are also building belief and confidence in ourselves.
