Hindi Sangam Foundation: A group of non-profit organizations based in New York and New Jersey joined hands with the Consulate General of India for organizing the First International Hindi Conference hosted by New York University, New York, in April 2014.

During a number of post-conference meetings held under the guidance of Ambassador Dnyaneshwar Mulay, the Consul-General of India, it was decided to create an independent organization for the future Hindi related activities. As a result, leaders of all four sponsoring non-profit organizations, Yuva Hindi Sansthan, Educators’ Society for Heritage of India (ESHI), Akhil Vishwa Hindi Samiti and Shikshyatan consented to launch a new body, which was named, ‘Hindi Sangam’. The four trustees of the Hindi Sangam Foundation represent the four sponsoring organizations. The Consul-General of India serves as a permanent invitee on the board of advisors.
