Singapore Indian Association
Since its inception in 1923, the Singapore Indian Association has sought to keep pace with the community’s growing role in the development of Singapore. IA aimed at reflecting the material, intellectual, cultural and recreational aspirations of the community.
The IA left its mark on the destiny of the Indian community during momentous events such as the Great Depression, World War II, and the Japanese Occupation of Singapore.
Since Singapore’s Independence in 1965, the IA has provided a link between Indians and the larger multi-racial community that constitutes the nation.
The IA has traditionally focused on its sporting and family –oriented social activities to advance the development of Singaporeans, particularly the young, of all races. In doing so, the IA has grown from being an association to an institution that strives to contribute to the development of a vibrant and thriving Singapore.
The IA continues to identify itself with the needs and aspirations of Indians in a globalizing, multi-racial Singapore.
