It’s not just your usual youth group or religious sermons!

We at Arya Shakha (affiliated with Hindu Swayamsevak Sangh, UK), through our activities, encourage young adults (7+) to learn, practice and preserve universal Hindu values, to build self-confidence, cultivate a sense of community awareness and achieve all round development in order to face the challenges of the modern era. This we hope will lead to individuals who proactively contribute and eventually become community role models.

Our BIGGEST goal is to organise and bring together the young Hindus in order to preserve, practice and promote Hindu ideals and values of life. We conduct regular physical and intellectual activities for all-round development. We lay emphasis on instilling high moral values in our members, including good character, self-discipline, self-confidence and a spirit of Seva (self-less service).

We meet once a week for an hour every Sunday @ 11-12am, in our local GHU temple. The activities are planned by trained instructors for all age groups (minimum 7 years – No upper age limit). They are conducted in a fun and joyful, yet disciplined environment.
