Bonjou! I am honored to have been asked to be a marenn (godmother) at a young girl's kindergarten graduation. I will not be in Haiti for the graduation but am wondering what might be expected of me, financially and/or otherwise. What would be appropriate for me to do? Thank you for your help!

The role of "marenn" in Haiti is usually that of a supporter, encourager, helper, patron or sponsor.  Since you cannot be present to encourage her, take pictures, or give her a pat on the back on the day she celebrates her achievement, you can send a gift.  The young little kindergarten graduate is probably looking forward first to summer vacation activities, then to her FIRST YEAR at school.  If you choose to give a gift, perhaps it could be some summer activity materials, a new backpack with lunchbox, or a nice pair of shoes.  You can never go wrong with shoes in Haiti :)
