Our Vision

Empowering Sikhs worldwide to realize their full potential.

The Inspiriation

While giving school fees for multiple students over the last 5 years, one thing we have always thought on how we can empower the families to be independent and not relying on donations to get through. The investment in healthcare is also limited for our community - making it harder to empower people mentally and physically. With these ideas in mind, an organization is formed  BC, Canada to work on it and tackling these challenges. 

Our Goal

The association will be working on empowering Sikhs by:

  • Providing scholarships to the needy Sikh girls.
  • Providing interest free loans or donations to the needy Sikh families to start their business.
  • Providing mentoring and career guidance to the Sikh youth.
  • Providing support in researching, publishing and distributing Sikh history and literature.
  • Providing support to the needy Sikhs for their healthcare. 

Need and Costs 

$30K is an estimation from the last year which the team spent personally before organizing formally on these efforts ($10K on donations to help someone establish a small business, $10K on scholarships, $5K on mentoring and career guidance, $3K on the healthcare and $2K on literature research and administration). However,  the need on mental health is increased which we want to invest more. and why we'll need additional funds in the coming years.  


Timeline & Audience

Team sewadars have been helping these things on individual basis but getting a project created with also get the benefits of corporate matching to make us achieve much more. The goal is to support those in US, Canada & India. However, most of the Sikhs being supported historically have been in India. 


Application Process

There is a form being worked out which will be required to be submitted. We will evaluate the submissions once a quarter and personally verify the applicant through our contacts by reference checks before approving any application. We will also provide guidance on getting started. For mentoring, we will be accepting all candidates initially as the investment is on time rather than financial but as the demand grows, we will also be limiting the number of individuals there.
