"Home away from home. Yes, that is Kannada Sangha (Singapore) for us. Kannada Sangha brings all the Kannadigas together. My husband, my son and I have participated in various activities such as dance, fashion show, represented the Sangha at national events, not to forget the badminton tournament where I also volunteered as an organizer. I doubt if I would have gotten similar opportunities even if I were in Karnataka.
The Kannada Sangha Whatsapp group is a very useful forum which acts as a helpline for accommodation, travel etc. and people do respond. To avail all these facilities and opportunities I have to only become a member at a very nominal cost. I still wonder how such a great organisation strives and continues to give so much to the people from Karnataka in Singapore at such a nominal cost.
I AM a proud member. ARE YOU?
I became a member of Kannada Sangha to find a sense of belonging and it feels beautiful to see so many Kannadigas united by the Sangha, and in touch with their roots, traditions, and culture.
Kannada Sangha was so friendly and welcoming that they made me feel at home, it feels like I never left Bangalore...
They encourage and provide a wonderful platform for Kannadigas to participate and showcase one's talent, such as hosting, dancing, singing. It is also an opportunity to network with a lot of kind people, who are willing to help out other Kannadigas as and when possible, be it to find a job, an apartment etc. It feels like a family more than a Sangha, which is a beautiful feeling.

We became Singara Singannadigaru because of our wonderful Kannada Sangha and it's core active members who have taken the intitiative to get every Kannadiga together and the effort is still ongoing. I am privileged to be part of such a fantastic group where everyone is treated with respect and everybody's opinion is considered for betterment of the Sangha.
Kannada Sangha is so active here in Singapore and keeps planning events throughout the year to get together often. I have had the opportunity to participate in some of these events; it has helped a lot of us to showcase our talents and hobbies.
What else would I want when I am in a crowd where you only get to hear Kannada, Kannada, Kannada!
I AM a proud member. ARE YOU?
When we are staying far from our mother land, initially we felt alone and didn't know anybody. With the help of Kannada Sangha, we met many like minded people and it made us feel like family.
I am more interested in cultural activities either as a participant or audience. Thanks to Kannada Sangha for arranging lots of activities and it helps to relax and hear Kannada in a different country.
Apart from cultural activities, Sangha arranges Kannada learning classes, real estate opportunities and many other things for Singannadigas. Thanks for everything and I am proud to be part of the group. Kudos to organizers for volunteering their time and effort in spite of their busy personal and professional commitments.
