Who are we

AHIA was created in 1994 targeting Hindi and Punjabi speaking Indians in New South Wales. Now it caters to all persons of Indian origin and had broad based objectives and activities. It is a non-profit, non-political and non-religious Organisation. It has currently 370 members including 270 Life members. We are celebrating our 25th anniversary in 2019.

AHIA is a non-profit, non-political and non-religious organisation with following objectives: - Promote Hindi Language - Organise cultural activities and functions - Promote social and welfare activities - Promote awareness of Indian traditions - Promote mental health and wellbeing.

To meet our objectives we:
  • Organise Cultural activities like Holi and Diwali celebrations; promote our cultural heritage and Hindi language .
  • Promote Social and Welfare activities for our elderly members by organising regular meetings and outdoor activities.
  • Keep our members informed of the events in our association, Community and elsewhere. And for this we publish a monthly Newsletter, Sandesh in English and Hindi.
  • Coordinate and assist members in crisis situations through counselling and guidance.
  • Promote awareness of Indian traditions to Government organisations or other similar organisations or associations.

Seniors meetings are heldon every second Saturday of the month from 1 pm to 4pm at Grevillea Hall,2 Lane street, Wentworthville.

These meetings-

  • Encourage socialization to combat isolation and loneliness.
  • Assist them to remain well both physically and mentally
  • Inform them of their privileges and rights andto help them in settling down and understanding the Australian way of life.

This group is very active and has grown in numbers with about 80 to 100 people attending every meeting. Most of the members are retired or semi-retired, many from India who came to join their sons or daughters, leaving behind their life-long connections.

We invite experts and speakers from different walks of life, — Medical, Law, Yoga, Health, Diet, Music, Social and Cultural. Most of the important events and festivals, including Baisakhi, Diwali, Australia Day, India’s Republic Day are celebrated by us. Members’ Birthdays and marriage anniversaries are remembered and celebrated.
