The Kerala Association of Ohio (KAOH) is a non-profit cultural organization that brings together the Malayalee community of north eastern Ohio. The association operates in the Greater Cleveland area, which boasts a strong legacy in manufacturing & healthcare and is known for its cultural diversity.


KAOH’s mission is to be a regional organization for the Malayalee community to meet, socialize and develop partnerships with other similar organizations in pursuit of community cohesion and social inclusion. Towards this goal, the organization arranges cultural gatherings that are open to all. Welcome to the official website of KAOH (Kerala Association of Ohio). One of the major contributions of the association has been to create awareness in those who are unfamiliar with the richness of language, literature, art, music, dance and culture of Kerala.
