It’s been an amazing journey of ten years so far for the organization as we celebrated our 10th Anniversary in 2017 with full of celebrations,
as ten years is an important milestone and decisive benchmark for our fraternity to look back and review our success and achievements..
During last decade, we could increase the number of members with our unity and friendship among us that we have been building up through sports , religious
programmes, CSR and entertainment events so on and have become a role model to other active groups in the region.It must be said that continuing a journey for ten years as a none profit making organization,especially in a foreign soil, is not an easy task unless we are extremely committed and maintain social and cultural interest at a higher level.
