Hindu Sevika Samiti (Kenya)
Hindu Sevika Samiti is a voluntary, non-profit women's cultural organization. Established in the late 1970's, the organisation now has several branches across Kenya.
Mission Statement and Objectives
Hindu Sevika Samiti, through its activities, encourage girls and women to learn, practise and preserve universal Hindu values, to build self confidence, cultivate a sense of social consciousness and achieve all round development in order to face the challenges and rigours of the modern era. This, we hope will lead to individuals who proactively contribute and eventually become integral members of the culture, society and country in which they live.
We strive to meet our aims by providing a balanced and diverse range of activities for the young and the old. The following are some few example of activities carried out on a weekly basis at our local branches:
Hindu Swayamsevak Sangh – An Introduction
H.S.S is a voluntary, non-profit, social and cultural organization.
Sangh, as the organization is popularly known, aims to organize the Hindu community in order to preserve, practice and promote Hindu ideals and values.
HSS conducts structured programs of regular athletic and academic activities to develop strong character and leadership skills for all age group members (known as swayamsevaks for men, and sevikas for women), emphasizing values such as self-discipline, self-confidence and a spirit of selfless service (sewa) for humanity.
HSS encourage maintaining Hindu culture identity in harmony with the prevailing diversity in the world.
To sum up, the aims and objectives of the HSS are the same as those of the great rishis and valiant heroes of the Hindu Society – that every Hindu should be physically, mentally and intellectually fit to serve the Society.
HSS started in Nairobi on 14th January 1947.
Today it has spread throughout Kenya with activities operational in Mombasa, Nakuru, Kisumu, Eldoret, and Meru.
Shakha is a branch of HSS where regular activities take place daily or weekly.
At the Shakha, members assemble regularly, to carry out activities such as Exercises, Yoga, Games, Discussions, and Lectures.
The friendly atmosphere at the Shakha instills required disciplines in members, young and old alike.
Some special programs like outings, general camps, and training camps are held around the year. These are aimed at inculcating all round development of the members.
HSS Members and Membership Fees
HSS Shakhas are held throughout Kenya. There are different shakhas for Swayamsevaks (Men) and Sevikas (Women).
Any Hindu is eligible to be a member. Just by joining a shakha, in one’s residential area, one becomes a member.
This being a voluntary organization, there is no membership fees.
