WHO WE ARE
Nishal, and his wife Indira, believe their purpose here is to love and support everyone just like in their small villages in the West Indies where they grew up. As immigrants, they know and relate to those who have limited means spanning multiple continents and countries. Now they are focused on helping others, whether one person or millions of people ~ they believe everyone is connected through our humanity and now digitally.
The name mohuman means to be mo’re human by connecting the “heart of humanity” to science and technology. After spending over 20 years in scientific research, medicine, and public policy working for the federal government, corporations, and nonprofits, Nishal, ensures that basic support systems reach those who need it most. Indira and Nishal feel the call to be change agents and give back to society through science and technology to help empower everyone.
