To promote and to nurture the unique values of Kerala heritage and culture, a group of visionary leaders sowed the seed for an organization for New England Malayalees (a region in the northeastern corner of the United States consisting of the six states of Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Vermont, Rhode Island, and Connecticut) back in 1970. Since its founding in 1970, KANE strive to nurture cultural and social values by empowering its members and Malayalees around New England area through its community service. And that is our Mission, which we accomplish by:
- Creating opportunities for its community members to share ideas and to exercise their traditional values.
- Providing best of the class platforms and leadership to help its community members exhibit their talents.
- Developing leaders through volunteerism and community service.
- Building bridges of understanding across generations and diverse communities; and
- Influencing the future generations to understand our tradition and its moral values to build a better society, a home away from home.
Currently the association boasts of over 500 member families and this number is growing. Kerala Association of New England organizes several events every year to bring people and families closer and to provide platforms for talents to showcase.
