Our Friends and Benefactors ensure that the work of the Centre retains a global focus, serving the communities it engages with.
We invite you to join our Friends and Benefactors. Your contribution will directly aid the development and promotion of academic excellence in Hindu Studies through an unbiased and structured programme of education, research, and publishing.
We are very fortunate to have dedicated and supportive friends groups who engage in activities at the centre and help out in many different ways. We currently have three friends groups, these are Friends of OCHS Birmingham, Friends of OCHS Leicester, and Friends of the OCHS USA. If you are further interested in the activities of our friends groups you can find more information on this page or have a look in our annual reports, where you will find a section dedicated to our friends.
