In 1997 Kòt a Kòt began as a way to care for six little girls in Haiti. Our goal was to provide resources so these girls, who came from desperate situations, could be raised in a loving Haitian family, yet maintain ties to their families of origin.
It is our desire to empower these girls, who are now young women, to become independent and contributing members of their communities. We are providing them with the education and tools they need to escape the grip of poverty and achieve independence. Our oldest three girls have graduated from high school and attend post-secondary programs. Our youngest three girls are currently in high school and have hopes and dreams of future vocations.
Kòt a Kòt is a Haitian Creole phrase that means "side by side". Contact Marcia Erickson at firstname.lastname@example.org to learn how to join us in this journey.
