Why Support Kala Project?
We are a point of connection:
There are many stories that need to be told—stories that teach us to listen to each other and connect us as humans. But these stories often remain buried under self-doubt and a vast array of superficial media coverage. Kala Project not only finds these meaningful stories, but provides a platform from which people can share their unique stories with the world.
We’ve created a space for people to listen:
A Kala Project film provides a few minutes to step into someone else’s story and to take on a posture of receptive listening. We believe that we all yearn for stories that connect us at the heart of what it means to be human. And in the short time we have been in existence, people have been listening. The stories we’ve shared have been featured on UpWorthy, Huffington Post, Yahoo Canada, Tedx Talks, YouTube nation, and many more. People are connecting with the heart of the human story.
These stories are making an impact:
Beyond inspiring individuals and widening perspectives, these stories are making an impact in the community and changing lives! For example, our film “Chimes For Tyler” has assisted in raising over $200,000 for autism research, and our film “Including Isaac” has helped introduce over 50 schools to inclusive education. Listening to each other’s stories breaks down barriers and creates space for understanding. We couldn’t carry on our mission without your support. Help us continue to share stories that connect people to the heart of the human story.
