5th Pillar DC would like to thank the Washington Tamil Sangam for partnering with us on the fundraising concert at the Schelesinger Center in Alexandria, VA. Without their backing, we would have been able to hold the concert and raise much needed funds for our crucial work in the fight against corruption. We look forward to many more partnerships in the future.
Washington Tamil Sangam is one of the longest serving Tamil organizations in the North America. Tamil Sangam’s primary goal is to organize cultural events for creating awareness and interest on Tamil language and culture among the younger generation. Tamil Sangam is the only platform where the diaspora Tamils can unitedly assert our identity and existence in this melting pot of multiple cultures. While we are separated miles away from our Tamil homelands, the Tamil sangam makes us feel at home by celebrating Chithirai Festival, Muthamizh Vizha, Children’s Festival, Tamil Isai and Pongal Festival etc. We also have several weekend Tamil Schools teaching Tamil language for our children. Tamil Sangam has conducted several North American conferences such as FeTNA Tamil vizha, International PuRaNaanooRu Conference, etc.
5th Pillar DC would like to thank AIMS India for partnering with us in the 2013 Marathon Training Program. As a premier charity organization in the Washington DC region, AIMS India has a history of collaborating with newer non-profits and we are grateful they chose to show us support in our fundraising efforts. We hope to continue this partnership for years to come.
