Namam is an Indian cultural organization that was formed in the United States in 2010. Under the strong and inspiring leadership of Mr. Madhavan B. Nair, the Founder and President of NAMAM, a team of enthusiastic people with unswerving dedication has transformed the organization into a platform for families to come together and experience a wonderful sense of belonging and oneness. Though, primarily an association of the Nair families in the US, NAMAM functions as a juncture of like-minded individuals across the community to engage in social and cultural activities.
NAMAM has been reaching out to the community with varied cultural programs, social gatherings and humanitarian aid efforts. It is our priority to pass a deep awareness about the rich heritage, unique customs and eclectic culture of Kerala to the younger generation in the US, so that they can appreciate and take pride in their genealogy.
We welcome you to join our organization and participate in our community outreach activities.

NAMAM is collaborating with IISAC, a non-profit organization promoting global education, for a project called “Seeking the Roots.” This project sends Malayalee high school students in the US to Kerala during summer vacation. Students in batches of 15 to 20 can participate in a 20 day program at an affordable cost. The program involves visiting the historically important places of Kerala, guided by college professors who will explain the history, biodiversity and other aspects at various centers. It also involves leadership development training, Malayalam language classes and experiencing the unique culture and heritage of the state such as traditional art forms and Ayurveda. Students can claim up to 3 transferrable academic credits at college level through this program.
