Providing literacy education to transform individuals and communities
Without the ability to read, write and count, employment is scarce, financial exploitation is rampant and millions of families go hungry. These individuals lack access to education, food, and a way out. 773 million people don't need to suffer when there is a clear path to empowerment.

She holds a Masters in Chemistry and a PhD in both Education and in Economics. Dr. Kamala developed the literacy programs and uses education to bring freedom to the oppressed through literacy and holistic development.
