KKNC BOT reached out to TVKS first about extending the KKNC Kannada Kali program to Tri-Valley area. They explained the process and possibilities. After the initial discussions, Chairman KKNC BOT, made a presentation to the TVKS board and executive team. They proposed a collaborative initiative of starting the Kannada Kali branch in Tri-Valley and worked with us in the execution of a “Memorandum of Understanding (MOU)” for opening the branch. TVKS BOD and executive team welcomed this great opportunity of enabling one more Kannada learning channel to our TVKS community. This resulted, the beginning of the KKNC YVKS Kannada Kali school in East Bay.
