GMOCO – Gujarati Mandal of Central Ohio

Gujarati Mandal of Central Ohio is a non-profit organization with more than five hundred Gujarati family members. Our main mission is:

  1. To promote the welfare and assimilation of Gujaratis in the main stream of American life.
  2. To foster friendship and understanding among its members and to develop common loyalties and mutual interest through literacy, social, educational and cultural activities.
  3. To cooperate and participate with other organization in program of common interest.
  4. To sustain and perpetuate the cultural heritage of Gujarati.
  5. To promote and assist activities and projects in furtherance of any or all the above.

All the activities of the organization are administered and organized by energetic and enthusiastic volunteers from the community. In order to bring a formal objective order into the working of the organization, a constitution was presented to the general body and was passed in December 1982. Committee members are elected each year for a two year term.

Since 1983, Gurjari, an annual publication is published by volunteer editors. Over the years the Gujarati Mandal has attracted outstanding scholars, writers, teachers and educators to speak before interested community members. The organization has participated several time in “Raas and Garba” competitions held every year in different cities and has won prizes.  This competition is organized yearly by the FOGANA (Federation of Gujarati Associations of North America).
