The Federation of Indian Associations unites various member organizations of Asian Indian origin in Central Ohio
A 100% volunteer non-profit organization, FIA-Ohio was established in 1983 to bring together all of the Central Ohio Asian Indian Associations in existence at that time. The goal was to unite the various member organizations, as well as co-ordinate the cultural, educational, social, economic, and community affairs of people of Asian Indian origin in Central Ohio.
With support from the different cultural organizations, and the growing Indian community, the Federation of Asian Indian Associations (FIA) defines the presence of the Indian community in Central Ohio. FIA works diligently to involve all generations of Indians in activities involving social and cultural exchange. There should be no cultural barrier to compete in this Land of Opportunity.
