KRIA – Kalam Research for Impact Authors

Unleash your creativity and write a story of hope

“Knowledge with action converts adversity into prosperity.”
Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam

Welcome to KRIA, a literary initiative that aims to empower underprivileged students through the power of writing. Our mission is to support the vision of Dr. A.P.J. Abdul Kalam and promote literacy, education, and personal growth among young people.

Through our fellowship, we provide training and mentorship opportunities to student authors, encouraging them to write books that reflect their experiences, aspirations and ideas. We believe that writing is a powerful tool for self-expression, personal development, and social change.

Our campaign is based on the principle of equal opportunities for education, and we believe that every student should have access to the resources and support they need to pursue their writing goals.
Join us in our mission to empower underprivileged students.
