HASC announces partnership with Kansas Leadership Center to build seva capacity through civic leadership education

Hindu American Seva Charities announces a partnership with Kansas Leadership Center, a leadership development organization with the charge of cultivating civic leadership throughout Kansas. The Leadership & Faith program of  Multi-Faith Teams offers a unique opportunity designed for Kansas faith congregations that want to make their communities healthier and more prosperous.

HASC is initially sponsoring 10 Kansas community leaders to participate in this historic, first of its kind training program.  It will give them a 
  • A chance to align their walk of faith  - Hindu - with opportunities to improve community life.
  • Civic leadership education that prepares them to make progress on the issues important to their Hindu and interfaith congregations. 
  • The opportunity to work with others in the Hindu congregation/temple to make a difference on critical community health issues.
KLC's programs align with HASC's efforts to develop seva/civic capacity among our community.  We thank Rema Venkatasubban for her efforts in bringing this partnership to fruition and welcome Sanjay Shah as the Seva coordinator in Wichita, Kansas.  Sanjay will work with diverse Hindu and Interfaith organizations to address critical needs of Wichita and Kansas. Through the seva efforts the voice of the community is getting heard.
