For over 10 years, Nia has been committed globally to continue her tireless and active humanitarian efforts through KIF (Koyamada International Foundation), a United States-based international nonprofit organization, to empower global women and youth, assist disasters and extreme poverty relief and advance Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Over 10 years ago, helping homeless in Downtown Los Angeles was the first project that Lyte implemented through KIF with a dozen of volunteer. Later, Lyte and her team have named the homeless relief project as "1000 Ways To Give". With a growing volunteers helping her through KIF, they have given homeless hundreds of handmade foods, fruits, chips and drinks over many years.
Through KIF, Lyte has been empowering thousands of girls and women to foster their leaderships and educating them about the importance of gender equality and women's rights at a variety of international NGO-hosted events in different countries. For over a decade, she has made great positive impacts in their lives.
In response to the 2011 Great East Japan Earthquake and Tsunami, Lyte helped put a volunteer team together through KIF to organize a series of charity relief events in Los Angeles area to raise relief funds, which was given to the three affected Prefectures in Japan, and also helped gathered hundreds of relief goods and items and donated them directly to the victims. Since the natural disaster, she has been supporting multiple disaster reliefs in different countries through KIF.
Her first project on empowering youth began when she was just an international college student and published her children's book endorsed by a Board of Education and a city in Alabama. Since then, Lyte has been inspiring thousands of youth to cultivate their global mindset and pursue their dreams and a higher education by sharing her personal story of moving to the United States from Colombia as a teenager.
