[0:50] MumAbroad: Kalila. What does it mean and why did you choose that name for your community?
Kathy Moulton: “Kalila is a difficult name, there’s always questions about how to pronounce it. When I was trying to name this project, which was born along with my first child, I was looking through baby name books and I found the name Kalila which is also sort of a combo of my name, Kathy, and my daughters name, Lila. I liked that it also meant ‘dearly loved’, which is how we wanted moms and women to feel when they are in our projects and our community.”
