Oregon Marathi Shala (OMS) is a non-profit school affiliated with Oregon Marathi Mandal (OMM). Marathi Shala project is initiated by Bruhan Maharastra Mandal of North America (BMM).  

OMS is solely run by our dedicated volunteers with main purpose to teach Marathi culture and Marathi language to future generations residing in Oregon. Our aim is to empower students with the ability to read, write and communicate in Marathi. Our students get exposure to Marathi Culture by learning about and celebrating different traditions at school. They also get an opportunity to showcase their newly acquired talent with Marathi language skills in various OMM programs including Ganesh Utsav, Navratri-Bhondla, Oregon Community Group song presentation of Marathi Abhiman Geet, Kids Talent Show, OMS Sneha Sammelan (Annual Day at the end of the year)


We are happy to include few non-Marathi speaking students who enjoy learning a new language!

OMS successfully completed its first academic year in September 2016, thanks to Bakul Godbole and Abhijit Phatak who took the initiative to start OMS!

Team OMS with the fabulous teachers and energetic volunteers devotes the time and expertise for this noble initiative. We are truly grateful for the sincere hard work, efforts and dedication of Team OMS who spend countless hours to make magic happen.
