Kavya Magham
Kavya Magham is currently a senior at the University of Washington, Seattle. She is majoring in Psychology and pursuing a medical degree. In her free time, Kavya loves to dance (mainly Indian classical) and do adventurous things around Seattle like jumping out of a plane! Her grandma has inspired her from a young age to give back to the community. This became her mantra and she is glad that the drive she has to help others could be directed towards this organization. She can’t wait to see what the future has in store!

Structure
Kinspire's organization is structured around three core committees: Outreach, Technology, and Projects. To learn more about each committee's work, check out the Impact page.
Branches
Kinspire's mission is spread around the country with the help of its dedicated branches. Groups of volunteers with a common goal have come together and expanded our reach, hosting events and conducting projects with those interested in their area.
Start a Branch
Kinspire UW is an RSO (Registered Student Organization) at the University of Washington. As a chapter of Kinspire, Kinspire UW focuses on raising awareness and expanding participation in its philanthropic efforts to the student body at the University of Washington. The UW cultivates an atmosphere of academic rigor and a sense of duty to serve people, which is integral to Kinspire's philosophy. Kinspire UW was founded in the 2014-15 academic year.
Emory SigRho has joined forces with Kinspire, as we hope to expand our contributions in the field of philanthropy and community service in a unique and meaningful way. Here, we will primarily focus on constructing appropriate learning materials and worksheets that will be directly used as interactive educational tools. We will also focus on raising awareness and diffusing our knowledge in a meaningful manner, ultimately helping empower children on the other side of the world.
Johns Hopkins University
Kinspire JHU is the official Kinspire branch at Johns Hopkins University. The team is hard at work on creating a health curriculum for the orphanages under Kinspire's purview. Having established a curriculum, we are working on the individual teaching plans for relevant health topics. These teaching plans aim to provide vital health information along with interactive activities for the children to apply their learning. We hope this curriculum will motivate student to practice positive healthy behaviors and will equip them with the information to live a healthy life.
Not only a friend, but something much more;
A guide and a role model is what we will strive for.
Sponsors
An important part of the tools Kinspire needs to succeed is, of course, money. We need funds to implement our projects, hold successful events, and provide resources to our kith and kin from across the world. Kinspire is able to carry out its vision with the support of individual donors as well as organizations and companies interested in sustaining our efforts.
