While we welcome donations, there are many ways to help KLM.

We are looking for people with specific skills to support the Board of Directors on an Advisory Board. In particular, we need professionals with a background in advertising / PR, accounting, law, and capital campaign fundraising.

In addition, we are always looking for new bloggers with an interest in, and a passion for, bringing about change in rural South African education. Whether you're a Returned Peace Corps Volunteer (RPCV), an educator, or just someone who's engaged in the space, we welcome your blog ideas and submissions. Please email Laura Portalupi with any ideas.

Finally, if you're just interested in helping, but don't really know how, please feel free to contact Bowen Hsu, who would love to discuss other possible ways to help based on our needs at the moment.
