Global Tamil Diaspora join hands in fundraising for Tamil Studies at SOAS University of London.

About this event

Why this Walk?

SOAS University of London has the longest tradition of teaching Tamil within the UK. The school was founded in 1916 with 20 languages in its initial offering, and Tamil being one among them.

Insufficient funds forced SOAS to withdraw Tamil Courses from its offering.

SOAS being the publicly funded institution, Tamils have the greatest responsibility of reinstating Tamil Studies at SOAS, and make it sustainable through a long-term endowment of £10m.

This charity walk is very important for the Global Tamil diaspora to get involved in the fundraising efforts.

How the walk is organised?

The charity walk is organised as a distributed walk. I will walk either at my home (garden or somewhere convenient), or nearby street or the local community park on 26th September 2021. I might also complete my walk earlier if any unforeseen circumstance arrives because of the ongoing pandemic. Recommended walking distance is 5km or choose a target according to your interest and health conditions.

Where will the money go?

All donations will go directly to SOAS University of London’s Tamil Studies endowment fund. To know more about TamilStudiesUK campaign, please visit www.tamilstudiesuk.org
