If you make an annual salary of $35,000, you are in the top 0.81% richest people in the world by income. You have purpose, and you have potential. You have dreams.
KVM Foundation exists to help young people fulfill their dreams and purpose.
KVM is an acronym for 3 Telugu words: Kala, Vidya, and Marpu.
Translated, this means: dream, educate, and change.
Our vision is to create a stable model to assist these students to gain both the necessary skills and vision.
The major focuses of KVM are teaching skills and, eventually, job placement. We teach conversational English, self-reliance and confidence to young adults from financially-strained backgrounds. Many of our students have had years of English education and even have recognized degrees in their field—yet they lack the confidence and skills to communicate. Many of them can regurgitate information, sentences, and ideas they have been told, but cannot utilize the language to express themselves and their ideas. We are piloting a replicable English model to turn rote English into English understanding and fluency. Our program teaches professional skills along with grammar and pronunciation and focuses on language confidence.
After students complete the 4-month program, they will be have additional skills for job placement. We are in the process of contracting with several companies in Vishakhapatnam, India, to hire KVM graduates. As KVM becomes more recognized both in the city and globally, we anticipate that many companies will look to our company for their staffing needs, giving our students a stepping stone to accomplishing their own dreams.
