Yes "All kids are at risk" is right, and some more than others. KLD can't serve all kids and can't mitigate all risks, but focuses on providing a boost for a target group of deserving kids. Huge thanks to the Mountain View and Sunnyvale community of parents, helpers and donors for allowing KLD to impact many hundreds of young lives.

I remember the day Pavan Nigam called me about this great idea his son, Akash, had. I was so happy to introduce him to 2 awesome folks: Police Chief Scott Vermeer & Oscar Garcia, CEO of the Mtn View Chanmber of Commerce. The rest is awesome history. I'm still waiting for my invite to coach:)

Keep,up the awesome work. You all have made life a little better for so many kids and kept their dreams and aspirations alive.

Who is the contact person for this camp? Do you have an email for them? I'd like my child to go next year?
