  Balvihar History
Plymouth Balvihar is a non-profit organization that has been serving the children of the Asian Indian community since 1987. It was known as "CMW Audubon Balvihar" until it was converted to "Plymouth Balvihar" in 1997. The organization is managed and run by volunteers from within the Plymouth Balvihar community.

As Asian Indian parents in the US, we have a responsibility to pass along the rich heritage that we have been fortunate enough to inherit. A community of parents collaborating to provide our children with a nurturing environment that helps them grow up to be proud of their heritage and the children who make us prouder with each passing season is the Plymouth Balvihar!

Our activities are held mainly in Plymouth Meeting - Blue Bell area outside of Philadelphia where most of our members live.

Hundreds of children have attended Plymouth Balvihar since 1987. Their proud parents are a testimony to Plymouth Balvihar's success.
