Southwest Washington Indian Cultural and Charitable Association
South West Washington Indian Cultural and Charitable Association (SWWICCA) is an Indian American non-profit organization. Swwicca was formed in 2013. Its primary objective is to bring Indian community in South West Washington together and promote Indian culture in Vancouver, WA metro area. It provides an excellent opportunity for the children to learn about the rich and ancient cultural heritage of India, through organizing various cultural, art and literacy events. It is also poised to help newly arrived people in this area via web and Facebook. SWWICCA also promotes and fosters goodwill between local people and the people of Indian origin through cultural exchanges and charity for local under privileged people.
