Mpho Macchambers CEO OF KULA EDUCATION GROUP
Mpho is founder and CEO of the Kula Education Group, a hybrid social enterprise implementing innovative and sustainable approaches to inclusive education, training and skills development for over 4 million South Africans living with a disability.
Growing up in a family where her mother was the principal of a school for deaf and blind learners and her father a lawyer, Mpho has always had the passion for accessible education and social justice deeply entrenched in her.
In 2015, she founded the SheCan project, a flagship initiative of the Kula Education Foundation, aimed at offering accredited skills development and vocational training to women and girls with disability - staying true to her belief that when you educate a woman, you truly can change entire communities.
For her social entrepreneurial strides and vision, Mpho was named the 2015 SHE by Spark* Changemaker with a business model most likely to have the greatest social impact; a validation she says continues to inspire her work to uplift women and girls, more especially.
Currently, while Mpho continues to grow her social enterprise, she also remains committed to her activist work as South Africa’s first ever #StrongGirl ambassador for ONE.org; a global advocacy campaign co-founded by Bono to fight against extreme poverty.
