The Hindu Students’ Council was born out of a Hindu youth conference, YUVA (Youth for Unity, Virtue and Action) held at the University of the West Indies in 2002. Participants at this conference felt that there was a need for an organization that would bring together Hindu students, encourage interaction, stimulate discussion and ideas, inculcate values, develop self esteem and foster unity.
The organization formerly started in March of 2003 when the first elections were held and the first executive was established. Since then the HSC has had a steady growth in membership and has generated high interest.
The Hindu Students' Council is an organization of secondary and post-secondary students, both full-time and part-time, dedicated to the task of building a strong organizational network amongst Hindu students in Trinidad and Tobago. The Hindu Students' Council sees no divisions of caste, class, sector any other divisive concept in the pursuit of this goal. We aim to achieve our objectives with the belief that the principles of Sanatan Dharma are universal and eternal. They are practiced by Hindus and hence the name Hindu Dharma. The worldview based on Dharma can provide a holistic and balanced world order free from intolerance and extreme materialism.
HSC VISION : Our vision is to have an active and united Hindu students body in Trinidad and Tobago dedicated to the practice and promotion of Sanaatan Dharma for the upliftment of humanity.
HSC MISSION : Our Mission is to develop an active Hindu student body in Trinidad and Tobago through activities that inspire, empower and foster brotherhood among Hindu students to enable them to face challenges in the education system and wider society.
