Cultural Center of India, Virginia (CCIVA) is a non-profit community organization offering community based programs and services that promote Southeast Asian culture in Virginia.
We have a state of art banquet hall for our community to come together and cherish events with family and friends.
We have grown over the years with the support of our amazing community!
Our mission is to share our Southeast Asian culture with the Central VA community by providing programming, events, and opportunities to volunteer!
Let's join hands and grow our community!
The year 2020 reflected as an intensely trying and anxious year that defined new normal for human kind. As the world comes out of this pandemic, our community service goals at CCIVA would be exploratory, innovative and creative on the ways we can help community needs.
We will be working in collaboration with partner organizations in and around Richmond to make positive and uplifting strides within our community. In addition to make our signature events Taste of India & Navratri Garba a great success, we'd engage with volunteer organizations and plan variety of programs to illuminate and showcase Indian culture and heritage by highlighting artists within our community.
The talented, energetic and diverse leadership team of CCIVA will work hard to strengthen our community in the coming years.
