IANH is the largest association of South Asian residents in New Hampshire. It has been celebrating the Festival of Lights for many years. With its popularity growing tremendously over the past few years, IANH expects a crowd of more than 500.

Besides being engaged in many cultural aspects, IANH has a deep-rooted commitment to public service in New Hampshire, and surrounding regions. IANH is a platform through which members are able to give back to the community by volunteering and donating to soup kitchens, organizing food drives that benefit local shelters and homes, and collecting donations for local and global charities. And like every year, the Diwali Festival is used as an opportunity for the IANH Youth Group to gather nonperishables for the Nashua Soup Kitchen & Shelter.
