Welcome to the official website of KAIRALI of BALTIMORE. we socialize and develop partnerships with other similar organizations in pursuit of community cohesion and social inclusion.Towards this goal, the organization arranges cultural gatherings, charity events etc that are open to all.
One of the major contributions of the Association has been to create awareness in those who are unfamiliar with the richness of language, literature, art, music, dance and culture of Kerala, a southern part of India, also know as "God's Own Country".
Born in 1984, Kairali of Baltimore is a non-profit 501(c) (3) organization registered in the state of Maryland with a focus for promoting the cultural awareness and social activities primarily among the Asian-Indians living in and around the Baltimore, Maryland region.
In the early 70s there were a few Keralites in the Baltimore area and an Indian store named Jai Hind on York road was an initial meeting place for them.
