KANJ is a registered non-profit, non-religious organization, provides a platform for the Kerala community to come together as a whole to celebrate our culture and traditions. We organize events with the intention of maintaining our rich heritage and providing our children an opportunity to get a glimpse of our culture. KANJ charity wing has played a major role in organizing events to help the less fortunate here in the United States as well as our brothers and sisters from God's Own Country. The future of our community is through our children, realizing that KANJ provides a platform for our youth to come together not only through traditional events but through programs that align with the interest of our younger members.
Formed in 1979 with the purpose of bringing together Indians of Kerala origin living in New Jersey to maintain the rich heritage and to provide their children an opportunity to get a glimpse of our culture.
Registered in the Newark hall of records as a non-profit organization. The inaugural meeting of the association was conducted in the Grace Church Hall in Orange NJ on May 12th 1979.
