Indian Association Sharjah was born in 1979 with the set objectives of promoting Indo-Arab friendship, providing educational and socio-cultural facilities for the children of the Indians in the area, providing charity activities and help to those community members in distress. Like any other organization, Indian Association Sharjah also had a humble beginning. Every one viewed it with his own reservations and did not show much interest to be members in it. Sharjah Indian School was born in a small rented villa with very few students and staff to cater to the needs of the educational requirements of the children of the expatriate Community in the emirates of Dubai, Sharjah, Ajman. Ras Al Khaima and Um Al Quwain.
The school was later shifted to the present campus
kindly donated by His Highness Dr. Shaikh Sultan Bin Mohamed Al Qassimi, Supreme
Council Member and Ruler of Sharjah. His Highness the Ruler of Sharjah was very
kind and compassionate towards the Indian Community in Sharjah always. It is the
kindness of none else that Indian Association Sharjah has got the present Office
Complex and the Community Hall Complex of the present day in a plot donated,
from the old rented villa near Rolla, Sharjah.
