About SCTS

Welcome to the Home Page of South Carolina Tamil Sangam (SCTS)'s website. We are a Non-Profit Tax Exempt Organization devoted to the people of Midlands in South Carolina, who have interest in Tamil Language and Culture.

The South Carolina Tamil Sangam (SCTS) started as an informal gathering of people from India, who speak Tamil language in April 2005, to celebrate Tamil New Year's Day. With the support from many Tamil families living in the Midlands at that time, a Tamil Class was started. This was lead by Thiru. Raghu Avali and his family.

As the interests rose there were cultural events and family outings. SCTS as a formal entity was established in December of 2008 with Thiru. Kumar Gounder as the then President. Later the organization was approved as a Tax Exempt Organization under section 501 C(4) of IRS. Currently the association conducts Tamil Classes for Kids regularly, a family Picnic in the summer and support the Tamil classical arts by having an annual cultural program.

Mission

Our Mission is to

  • Preserve, maintain, and perpetuate the cultural heritage of the people of Tamil origin in Midlands area of South Carolina.
  • Organize periodic Tamil literary and educational meetings/gatherings to promote the local talent as well as to invite the distinguished Tamil scholars and artists to South Carolina for close interaction with the people of South Carolina.
  • Collaborate with other organizations of Tamil literary, cultural, and educational activities.
