Activities

We regularly participate in charity work and have worked alongside many charitable trusts in the past. All ourkids are members of Balagokulam, where they learn to appreciate their cultural roots, learn Hindu values in an enjoyable manner and make good friends. They will also develop a sense of Sewa, Service to human kind. Our Samajam aims to promote inter-racial harmony and build a future generation appreciating Hindu values and traditions.
