Get to know all about us

Nandalala Mission is a non-profit organization dedicated to nurturing children’s fullest potential through educational, cultural, physical, and service-oriented activities.

Nandalala Mission was founded in 1997 in Sunnyvale, California by Pujya Shri Mathioli  Saraswathy as a chapter of the Nandalala Seva Samithi in Chennai, India, a service-oriented organization with a long history of community service.

Since then, our organization has been active in four locations in the United States, offering programs for the local communities aligned with our core values of Community Service, Education, Arts & Culture, Health & Wellness, and Spirituality.

Over the years, hundreds of children and adults have participated as performers and volunteers.  Students, schools, homeless shelters, parents, and the general public have benefited from our grassroots efforts.
