SAAV: Young South Asians Bettering The Community

South Asian Alliance Vancouver (SAAV) is a not-for-profit foundation made up of current and graduated post-secondary students who share the same simple passion: giving back to the community. The group has been a part of a number of food and clothing drives, fundraisers to aid the underprivileged, anti-bullying campaigns, educational information sessions, tree planting events, and much more. SAAV is ultimately a platform for youth to band together to work toward the betterment of the South Asian community and of society at large.

SAAV recognizes the seven South Asian countries in the world and its members act as a group (or an “alliance” if you will) to represent the community in the most positive and progressive manner possible.

SAAV has been able to make these positive strides thanks to the help of its’ generous sponsors/partners including: Decibel Entertainment, Just Cakes BC, Pink Orchid Studio, Deo Studios, Precious Moments Decor and Always & Forever Wedding Planners, MannKind Charitable Society and others.
