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.
