Sakhi means "Friend". The purpose of “Sakhi” is to unify Maheshwari / Rajasthani ladies living in North America as a pariwar.Through Sakhi we are trying to foster Maheshwari/Rajasthani culture, Marwadi language, spiritual awareness, family values, promoting a sense of identity and community through celebration of Marwadi festivals such as Gangaur and Teej. Sakhi encourages sharing talent/knowledge with each other in fun and creative ways – crafts, arts, cooking, and workshops. Sakhi communication is done via the MMNA Sakhi facebook , MMNA website and yahoo group. MMNA Sakhi facebook is a platform for discussion on various topics.
