This event, focusing on six core topics, marked a significant step in TILE’s mission to nurture and empower the global Tamil community.

Interactive and Engaging Sessions Capture Hearts and Minds

The workshop welcomed 16 participants, engaging them in a series of participant-based activities designed to deepen their understanding of Tamil heritage and leadership skills. Held in a spacious center, ideal for group activities, the event fostered an environment of learning and collaboration.

Participants were treated to a well-organized event with ample space for interactive sessions. A generous well-wisher contributed to the success by providing lunch, snacks, and tea, ensuring a comfortable and nurturing experience for everyone involved.

Another attendee praised the unexpected and engaging nature of the activities, highlighting the program’s success in delivering an educational yet enjoyable experience.

The success of the workshop was evident not just in the feedback, but also in the tangible outcomes. Two participants have already volunteered to work with TILE, and there’s an exciting prospect of establishing a TILE representative in the Netherlands soon.
