Kashmala has been associated with the CPA for the last 9 years. Kashmala believes in the vision of and the values of the Commonwealth. These are the same values she has fought for since her early political career as a student activist and continues to do so as a Parliamentarian. Her work in the CPA over the last decade is a natural progression of her national interests. As Chairperson of CWP she worked tirelessly as an advocate of democracy, gender equity and human rights. She worked assiduously to find solutions to the problems faced by all Commonwealth countries in realizing the goals of women empowerment and equal opportunity for all. She proved to be a standard bearer of global harmony and unity. Due to her robust participation in CWP as a representative of the Asia region of CWP, and later as the vice-chairperson of CWP, she was elected as the chairperson of CWP in recognition of her services and contribution to CWP. As the chairperson, her efforts resulted in making the voice of women parliamentarians’ influential in the CPA decision and policy making. It was due to her unrelenting efforts that CWP Chair was recognized as “Officer of the Association” which was unprecedented in the hundred year history of CPA. During her tenure as the CWP Chair, Kashmala was also successful in getting the CWP budget increased by the main CPA authorities.
