The World Malayalee Council was formed in April 1995 to network Malayalees around the world. It was inaugurated on 3rd July 1995 at the first ever World Convention of Non Resident Malayalees in New Jersy.
The main objective of this organization is to provide a non-political forum to bring together the widely scattered community of people of Malayalee/Kerala origin and strengthen the common bonds of culture, tradition and way of life. The charter of the organization recognizes the revolutionary transformation taking place at global levels as a result of quantum leaps in technology. WMC works towards an international brotherhood of Malayalees/people of Kerala origin to bolster their cultural, artistic and social uniqueness and give resilience and understanding towards other cultures with which they have to co-exist and interact. To translate these avowed goals, WMC has constituted world wide Regional and Provincial Councils with eminent Malayalees who have distinguished themselves nationally and internationally. At different organizational levels suitable and committed persons with vision and integrity are elected . WMC is responsive to the needs of the diverse multi racial geographical milieu in which Malayalees move about.This organization with a global network provide opportunities and capabilities for people of all age group to provide leadership and service to the community they live in and to the motherland Kerala/India. WMC gives special emphasis to the development of the new generation of expatriate Malayalees who feel cultural and social alienation in their adopted country.
The mission of WMC is to create a global Malayalee community able to communicate and cooperate each other and continue the connection through generations thus maintaining the Malayalee identity for years to come.
