The Rajasthanis Abroad Youth Samaj, or RAYS, was created in early 2005 to form connections among Marwari youth living in North America through shared culture and heritage. Since its inception, RAYS has coordinated numerous regional and national events that have allowed the Marwari youth to develop their cross cultural identity by meeting peers and experiencing Marwari culture on a relatable level. RAYS maintains a strong collaborative relationship with the Maheshwari Mahasabha of North America (MMNA).

The mission of RAYS and its programming endeavors is to foster and grow a community of young (21 to 35 years of age) Marwaris. We hope to strengthen existing friendships and create new ones, anchored in our shared heritage. Together, we hope to explore our culture, network professionally, and of course, have a good time!
