Gurung Society Kent (GSK) was found in early 2007 firstly by Gurungs who were living in Ashford at that time. Later in the same year, the society spanned its boundary over to other Gurung habitats mainly Folkestone, Dover, Canterbury and Maidstone recognising the importance of the society and interest of Gurung population.. The society aims to keep up the well-being of its members and help each others in time of difficulty such as grave injury, illness and loss of a life with the provision of both moral and financial assistance as necessary. It always focuses on strong social relationship within its members by promoting and preserving Gurung language, culture, tradition and dresses with the view of passing it on to the future generation.
Since its foundation and inception, the society has been involved in several occasions to practice the Gurung culture and custom including ritual and social activities. The society has been also successful in organising a Tamu seminar, probably the first time of such kind in the UK. The society extends its humanitarian and charitable assistance within its capacity and interest where it deems appropriate and necessary. The society remains an independent, non-affiliated and non-profit making institution.
