Women Holding Hands



Malayalee Association of Greater Philadelphia (MAP) established in 1978 is a registered non-profit social and cultural organization with over 500 members. MAP was formed as a forum for Malayalee Community from South Indian state Kerala to promote and encourage the social, cultural, and educational life of its members.  Their aim is to help people develop social interactions, maintain cultural heritage, formulate the charity projects and programs and foster the relations with other communities.



I am humbled, honored and privileged to be the  President of Malayalee Association of Philadelphia (MAP, 2020). I am deeply grateful to my executive committee, committee members and dear MAP family for your support  and outstanding contributions. Indeed, the growth of MAP has been propelled collectively by the past presidents committees and members of the this great organization.
