About The Foundation
The Heroica Foundation is dedicated to improving the lives of women and girls all over the world through education and media. Kamala Lopez formed the Heroica Foundation as a natural outgrowth of her two core areas of concentration:
- Heroica Films, her production company formed in 1995 and dedicated to creating media by, for, about and with women and girls
- Her philanthropic work with “at risk” girls, girls incarcerated in the juvenile justice system and other groups suffering extreme oppression.
While financing for women’s projects may be difficult, the importance of their voices finding a forum is of irrefutable importance to the health and progress of the overall society. Heroica Foundation welcomes support from women, girls and their allies who wish to contribute to the expansion of female voices and stories in the media landscape and across the globe.
