Partners: KidSAKE | Art for Good | Sophie Press
For more than two decades, Jenny Rogers, Executive Director of The KidSAKE Foundation, has been striving to stand in the gap for children who face barriers to learning, lack self-esteem, feel under-valued and don't know the path to finding belonging and purpose.
Originally, the 'SAKE' portion of KidSAKE stood for "Save all kids everywhere." Later, this became 'serve' not save because saving all children seemed too lofty and distant. However, KidSAKE is returning to its roots and sharpening its focus on helping young people--in fact--the child in each of us--by partnering with Art for Good to launch The Traveler's Journey: Passport to Freedom. This unique project will delve into each area of KidSAKE's mission: It will equip, empower, and engage participants in learning more about themselves, their self-worth and their value to community, eliminating barriers to learning and a healthy well-being from the inside out.

KidSAKE Scholarship provides for young mother's education
May 2015 Update
Dania, at age 35, worked her way through her nursing school education while dual-enrolled in high school, too. She graduated with both a high school diploma and a nursing degree. Congratulations, Dania! KidSAKE has sponsored her education to nursing school. Thank you for your support. Changing the life of one person in this way creates a butterfly effect in a community the size of Cane. Without outside support, Dania would not have received her high school diploma or a nursing degree; she would still be mending and recycling clothing to sell to support her family. She is an example of what hard work and dedication can accomplish; a light for others in her community. KidSAKE began its work as a nonprofit by serving the women and children in the community of Cane, Honduras, by adopting a small soup kitchen run by retired schoolteacher, Clementina Martinez.
