My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Hindu American Foundation, Washington, DC, USA
Hindus in general and particularly those in the United States, are not very articulate about explaining their faith to the curious, or defending their faith against the malicious. In other words they have very few organized advocates.
HAF does just that, and that too on a shoe-string budget. I am very, very impressed by their advocacy for Hindus in America.
But I am doubly impressed by their foresight and vision to also take on the challenges to Hinduism from within, such as casteism, untouchability, etc. Their eyes wide open, minds wide open and arms wide open approach is a refeshing change from the often narrow advocacy of other so called Hindu groups.
