ABOUT US

The official inauguration of Eastern Sydney Malayalees Association (ESMA) took place on 26.04.2014 and thus the first platform for Malayalees of the Eastern suburbs came into existence. ESMA is the first organization of this kind to cater the needs of the Malayalee community in Eastern Sydney suburbs. The word Malayalee stands for any person from the state of Kerala which is one of the southern states in India. Kerala is well known for its 100% literacy and the green and clean environment. Kerala is one of the sought after tourist destination and is famous for its backwaters and regional festivals. The Eastern Suburbs is the metropolitan area directly to the east and south-east of the Sydney central business district in Sydney, New South Wales, Australia. This includes the suburbs within the local government areas of Woollahra, Waverley, Randwick and part of the City of Sydney. The Eastern Suburbs of Sydney extends from the peninsula of South Head at Watsons Bay in the north to South Coogee in the South.

Eastern Sydney Malayalee Association Inc. (ESMA) was established with the aim of bringing together all the Malayalees of the eastern Sydney region to foster contacts, friendship and understanding to the extent possible for the wellbeing of the Malayalee community as well as that of the Australian society. The primary objective of ESMA is to promote and maintain the vibrant culture of Kerala to the Malayalee community in Sydney Eastern suburbs and also has an ongoing focus of increasing cross-cultural understanding and promoting cultural diversity and cooperation between the other ethnicities in Sydney and Australia wide. Through meticulously organized cultural, social, educational and sporting activities Eastern Malayalee Association Inc adds value to society thereby achieving high level of social interaction and social awareness in the community. For the younger generation, we pass on the cultural heritage, tradition, the rarely cherished legacy and values while they are integrating in to the Australian culture. We celebrate social and religious festivals traditionally celebrated in our home land to keep alive our strong bond with Kerala. We link people, culture and values in this ‘Kangaroo land’ where a well-knit multi-ethnic community lives harmoniously
