Bay Area Tamil Manram is a secular, non-profit, non-political, and non-partisan organization. It has been serving the San Francisco bay area since 1980. It was started as a group for like-minded Tamils to socialize and has grown into a strong organization of what it is now.

The success behind this organization is that it has adapted to changing times and needs of the Tamil community in these 25+ years. Before the days of proper Tamil schools in the bay area, Tamil Manram has conducted Tamil classes for children and adults. Before the days of the Internet where Tamil magazines are available for free, Tamil Manram has hosted a lending library of Tamil magazines for its members.

Now Tamil Manram has grown into a strong position of leadership and remains as an organization that represents the local bay area Tamil community.

Tamil Manram continues its service to Tamil. It is committed to the growth of Tamil cultural activities in the bay area. Tamil Manram regularly conducts Children’s events and encourages our children to learn Tamil language and Tamil culture. Tamil Manram also raises funds for social cause for non-profit charity organizations.

Tamil Manram as always stays committed to the promotion of Tamil, Tamil culture and encouraging local talents. Whether it is iyal, isai or naatakam, Tamil Manram has always been an outlet to provide a stage for the local talents to exhibit their creativity.
