Since the formation of United Arab Emirates in 1971, this country has seen a huge influx of immigrants for a better life from all around the world, especially from our country. The great leaders and people of this country were very generous to accommodate all of us as their part and extended whole hearted support to have a good living. With the increase in expatriates, the wise leaders also have allowed the formation of organizations under their patronage to provide support and services for the expatriate community. This decision, along with the hard work of our founders led to the birth of Indian Social Centre, Al Ain in the year 1975.
With an illustrious track record of 41 years of service history, Indian Social Center Al Ain stands with its head upright as the one and only approved Indian organization in Al Ain.
