World Malayalee Council (Malayalam: ലോക മലയാളി പരിഷദ് Loka Malayali Parishad) or abbreviated as WMC was formed on July 3, 1995 in New Jersey. It was inaugurated at the first ever World Convention of Non Resident Malayalees. The main objective of this organization is to provide a non-political forum to bring together the widely scattered community of people of Malayalee/Kerala origin and strengthen the common bonds of culture, tradition and way of life. WMC works towards an international brotherhood of Malayalees/people of Kerala origin to bolster their cultural, artistic and social uniqueness and give resilience and understanding towards other cultures with which they have to co-exist and interact.
WMC has a three tier organizational structure, (i) a global council, (ii) six regional councils (America, Europe, Africa, Middle East, India, Far East, and Australia) and (iii) local units called Provincial Councils. Membership in WMC is in the provincial councils. Each province serves as the body serving the local Malayalee community. WMC also has International Forums. The Youth and Women's forum are to be formed in all provinces, which also has a three tier structure.
