MAUK …an extended family!
Malayalee Association of the UK has been in existence since 1974 and plays a pivotal role in
- Representing the Malayalee Community
- Working for the social, welfare and educational advancement of the Malayalee community
- Promoting Kerala, its arts, culture and heritage
- Supporting charitable causes in the UK and India
MAUK has always held a fond place in the hearts and minds of the first and second generation Malayalees, as it was their focal point to meet and make friends. It gave them a common platform to celebrate their unique cultural identity in a society that was new and inadmissible to them.
Through our activities we have maintained our traditional ties and has deepened our cultural and social customs. MAUK has always been at the forefront of promoting Kerala culture and the richness of our language, the contents of our literature, art, music and dance. With this end in mind we regularly organise various events, programmes and competitions involving our members.
In a world that is plagued with rising suspicions and hatred, we believe that the focus should be on more integration whilst preserving the best of our inherited culture, tradition and customs. We aim to achieve this by providing opportunities for our community members to explore the diverse cultures that United Kingdom has to offer, whilst enabling people from other cultures to experience what both Kerala, and we as a community have to offer.
We at MAUK pride ourselves in being able to provide high standard services and activities in response to the evolving needs of our community. Together we have tackled many issues, fought many battles and accomplished many heights. But the work of MAUK is constant and endless. Undoubtedly, MAUK can continue to be successful only if it can ensure the steady and continuous support community members. We have come together without divisions or segregations. Regardless of gender, religious beliefs, political affiliation or sexual orientation we welcome all those with an interest in the core vision of MAUK to be part of our ‘extended family’.
