We Konkanis are a small community but spread all over the world. Konkani, as a language and as a community, need to be preserved, so that our origins and our unique identity is preserved for future generations.
"Sangam" is a service offered as a courtesy to the Global Konkani community.
Sangam is not currently maintained or managed by KAOCA. It is made available as a courtesy to all members of the Global Konkani Community who want to find a compatible partner in the community. Please note that Sangam is maintained and managed independently by an external Third Party and is not part of KAOCA.
Why is Sangam no longer a part of KAOCA?
Below are some reasons why Sangam is no longer a part of KAOCA
1. Sangam serves the Global Konkani community and not just the Bay area in California. The KAOCA committees change every year, and primarily serve the Bay Area Konkani community. By having Sangam outside of KAOCA, an independent external entity now supports Sangam. The ongoing maintenance and update to Sangam is no longer dependent on the KAOCA committee.
2. Sangam's data and website actually resides outside of KAOCA databases. KAOCA committee does not have any access or control over Sangam databases or Sangam websites. This is also one of the decisions to keep Sangam as a separate entity outside from KAOCA.
