Namaskaru,

We would like to invite all KAOCA Friends and their families to various events we have planned for 2020!

You are in for a highly EXHILIRATING year ahead in 2020! All the Konkanis in the Bay Area are super-excited about the 2020 Sammelan being held right here in our neighborhood! In addition to this extravagant event, your KAOCA 2020 committee has planned a LOT of activities, free classes and events for you!
These events have been conceptualized and designed to arouse the KONKANI in you….and your children!! And build a strong Konkani foundation that will last for several generations for many years to come – in this foreign country which we call home now!

The goal of these new events planned in 2020 is to promote our Konkani culture, bring a sense of pride, belonging and togetherness among our Konkani community and also encourage wellness and fitness.

We have segregated these new 2020 events in the following categories:

Ugadi :

P.S. Our KAOCA Ugadi event at Carrington Hall - Sequoia High School has been postponed until further notice. Please keep checking this space for updates.

Gurukul:

Quite a few children born and raised here in the US are unfortunately not very comfortable with speaking Konkani fluently or at all, and are unaware or partially aware of our culture and traditions.  
The KAOCA 2020 Committee is bringing you a NEW 3 hour Gurukul class to be held once a month (frequency may increase in case of demand) for kids between the age groups of 4 and 18. The goal of KAOCA Gurukul is to promote a greater understanding of our Konkani history and roots, our Konkani language, Hindu festivals and traditions, teach reading and writing using Devnagri script, teach Bhajans, Shlokas and Prarthana and to give kids an opportunity to  socialize and enjoy together with Arts & Crafts and Painting activities! This will be a FREE class available to all KAOCA children – starting in January 2020!

Wellness & Fitness:

We KAOCAns in the Bay Area are health and fitness conscious, and enjoy and prosper when we engage in fitness-related activities! 

To promote this spirit and interest, we have decided to start the following activities to be held once a month:
