Sahrudaya represents the community from Kerala (in South India) – also known as “God’s Own Country” – in West Kent, U.K. The association covers Tunbridge Wells, Tonbridge, Southborough, Crowborough, Pembury, Staplehurst, and other nearby areas.

The Mission
Kerala with its innate natural beauty and unique demographics is one of India’s longest-lived, healthiest, most gender-equitable, and literate regions. It has one of the most peace-loving populations and Sahrudaya would like to cultivate and disseminate this spirit in the West Kent community. Sahrudaya stands for Good Hearts inMalayalam.

We hope to support the interests of the Malayalee community in the United Kingdom, uphold our cultural and artistic values and foster friendship with other communities. We aim to promote Kerala’s indigenous cultural values and provide community members with an opportunity to meet, discuss and propagate the heritage and traditions of Kerala.

Sahrudaya will extend a helping hand to any member in distress, involve in charitable deeds and work with other community members and similar associations elsewhere in the world. Even as we lay our foundation, we have envisaged a multitude of avenues, which Sahrudaya would definitely strive to achieve and thereby realize the dreams that we will forever cherish.

Basically through Sahrudaya

  • We want to create an atmosphere where we could share the traditions and culture with the local    community.
  • A fulcrum for our community to progress ahead
  • Develop opportunities for children to learn native arts like classical Indian dances and music

Sahrudaya – The West kent Keralites is the first UK Malayali Association recognized and enlisted with the Non-Resident Keralites Affairs (NORKA) a department of the Government of Kerala.
