Greater Richmond Telugu Association
The Greater Richmond Telugu Association is one of the pioneering cultural organizations in the Greater Richmond area of State of Virginia. We are a 501(c) (3) Nonprofit, non-political, non-sectarian organization, established that caters to the growing needs of the Telugu community in cultural, educational and community service areas. One of the organization’s primary missions is to preserve and propagate the Telugu cultural heritage and maintain the identity of said group of people, to provide a forum for Telugu literary, cultural, educational, social, and charitable activities of its members in an effort to share a strong bond rooted in common heritage.
Dear Community Members, May this New Year bring you an abundance of happiness, health, and success! I am privileged and thankful for being chosen as the President of GRTA for the year 2022. Through vision and commitment, previous presidents have contributed to significant growth of the organization. I promise you all that I will keep up the pace and strive to promote the organization in other areas along with cultural values among the community and pass on the heritage to our future generations with the help and support from you all. We should also be highly indebted to members, volunteers and sponsors for keeping up the core mission and values of the organization. This year we will be working with even more rigor and commitment to maintain the momentum and take every opportunity to keep our families and community safer and healthier. Continuing the legacy, it is our responsibility to hand off our rich Telugu heritage and culture to our future generations who are born digital and borderless. I hope you keep inspiring a spirited participation in the year to come.
