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.
