Hindu Swayamsevak SanghAn 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 Activities

HSS started in Nairobi on 14th January 1947.

Today it has spread throughout Kenya with activities operational in Mombasa, Nakuru, Kisumu, Eldoret, and Meru.
