Dear Members

The Memorandum of Incorporation (MOI) was adopted in 2017.  The MOI makes provision for the governance of Umhlanga Hindu Society (UHS) through a Board of Directors and six committees to achieve its objective of promotion of Hinduism which includes acts of worship, promotion of Hindu arts, culture and customs and service to the community through anti-poverty initiatives and response to emergency relief in case of disasters.

The committees are:

1.   Cultural Committee
2.   Fund Raising Committee
3.   Finance Committee
4.   Youth Committee
5.   Seva Committee

The committees deliberate on issues pertaining to the various functions of the UHS and make recommendations to the board which makes decisions which are then implemented by the committees.

The UHS Board is inviting members to join any one or more of the committees
to help it to serve the local community and the broader community in times of need.
If you wish to join any one or more of the committees, please contact the secretary:
