Indian Ladies Association (ILA) Bahrain
The acronym ILA has become a household word amongst the various communities in Bahrain. Whether it was through shows or showcasing the best of India and the world's multi-cultural heritage, ILA's impeccable style and efficiency and number of good causes that it has supported has made this organization a well-respected milestone in Bahrain's cultural and social scene. In all its endeavors, the ILA has been fortunate to receive the patronage of the Ladies of the Royal Family of Bahrain and the authorities of the Kingdom of Bahrain.
The Association provides its 200 plus members with a platform for addressing their many concerns and interests. Members are involved in a number of projects through a series of sub-committees. Visits to old age home, child care home and other rehabilitation centers, form the core of our community activities as does the provision of home-cooked meals & entertainment to expatriate laborers, organizing free medical camps and the running of adult literacy classes. Our members also benefit from monthly meetings that address their interests be it cookery, art & craft or health care. There is an active Youth Wing for the children of ILA members that provide them with fun activities and leadership courses. However, the flagship activity of ILA is the running of Sneha, a center for children with special needs.
A Golden Jubilee is indeed a time for celebration and while we revel in our success over the past 50 years, we once again hark back to our motto 'Service Before Self'.
It is a proud moment for all of us to reflect back on five decades of our achievements which was made possible due to the strength, vitality and solidarity of our members and the tremendous support from the community around. We do not wish to rest on our laurels but welcome the opportunity and challenges that lay ahead.
