Working with Western Union & WKKF

Partnering to promote leadership and education

December 19, 2013


This fall, HELP celebrated a very exciting landmark. We received the two largest single-year grant disbursements in our history, thanks to the generous partnership of the W.K. Kellogg Foundation (WKKF) and the Western Union Foundation. Both WKKF and Western Union have a longstanding focus on education, and together they are sponsoring nearly 20% of the HELP student body for the 2013-2014 school year. WKKF’s support for HELP is part of their recently launched 15-year commitment to Haiti, while Western Union’s engagement comes via their three-year “Education for Better” global campaign.
