On behalf of the Executive Board of Thenmaradchi Development Association (TDA), I am delighted to invite you to attend our 2016 Annual General Meeting which will be held at 129 Kingston road, New Malden, KT3 3NX from 2.30pm to 5pm on Sunday, 11 December 2016.
Thenmaradchi people and the region needs our support to develop their education, health, environment and economy. Our education level is not close the national level. Students’ interest is dropping in Science, Maths, English and Computer studies. Health and Social care has not improved. Employment opportunities are very limited. Business investment in our region is close to none. We believe, with your active support, we can change and make a difference to the life of Thenmaradchi people.
TDA UK has gained new momentum since last year. We initiated several new projects to promote Education, Health and Economic situation in Thenmaradchi region. Thenmaradchi Education Fund (TEF) was launched to support under privileged Thenmaradchi students to continue their education. We are funding English Teachers’ Training program by the British Council to enhance English Language skills in our region. We held sports events and recognised the talents. For the first time, we jointly organised a Thenmaradchi Kalai Vizha with the participation of various schools in our region. We also expanded our network outside UK by opening new regional TDA branches in Canada,France, Germany and Australia with the same objectives. We have launched a dedicated website www.thenmaradchi.org to transpire our activities worldwide. I will go through the projects/activities and the financial status during the AGM.
After 10 years of serving as a patron of TDA, DR.S.Jeyanathan decided to relieve himself from the duties but agreed to remain as an active member. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Dr. S. Jeyanathan, for his valuable services for TDA and Thenmaradchi people.
Here is the AGM agenda:
- Welcome by President
- 2.Secretory’s report
- TDA UK activities for the last one year – President
- Financial Status – Treasurer
- Plans for the next one year – President
- New Appointments / Changes to the Constitution

The new momentum can only be sustained and brought forward with your active support, advice and contribution. Your participation is the key for our success. I cordially invite all members and associate member associations to attend our AGM.
We very much look forward to a good turnout.
Together We Bring Prosperity to Thenmaradchi
