GUYANA, January 22, 2024 (Guyana Times): Guyana’s president, Dr. Irfaan Ali, has noted that, as an organization, the Guyana Hindu Dharmic Sabha (GHDS) plays a pivotal role in producing well-rounded leaders and driving positivity within society. When he made this remark on Sunday, at the mammoth celebration of the GHDS to commemorate its 50th anniversary, the Head of State noted that the existence of the Guyana Hindu Dharmic Sabha cannot be talked about without mentioning the role it played over the past 50 years in ensuring the country’s democracy remains intact and Guyana remains a place where peace and development are foundational pillars to work towards. President Ali noted that the GHDS has shown that its existence is secure for decades to come, because of the investment it has made and continues to make in young people and children, producing some of the “finest” professionals in various fields. He said building such leadership in an organization is important in today’s society.

Although its primary mission revolves around the education of Hindus in the values and concepts of Hinduism, the Dharmic Sabha has, over the years, expanded the ambit of its work to include areas of education, social issues, health and wellbeing, and community service.
In 2019, the Guyana Hindu Dharmic Sabha was recognized by the Government of India with the Pravasi Bharatiya Samman Award, the highest Award given by the Indian Government to an organization established by Overseas Indian Diaspora, for its outstanding achievement in the field of community service, and in recognition of its valuable contribution in promoting Indian culture.
