SAF's Focus

Sikhs help everyone no matter what race, caste or religion a person is from, but somewhere along the line, we are leaving behind our people that desperately need aid.

Sikhi Awareness Foundation (SAF) International has been working in the Sikligar Sikh communities since 2017 with various long-term development projects. We have had tremendous success at some of our projects, such as the Gujarat Sikligar Community Development project. Check out the impact report here.

Project Overview
With all the ongoing projects of SAF International, we now have a separate housing project for a small community of Sikligars about 70km from New Delhi.

This community has 20 houses that belong to Silkligar Sikhs, and six houses are in desperate need of reconstruction. Most of the families in this community work as locksmiths, making daily up/down trips to Delhi to sell locks. Without SAF International and your help, these families would never be able to build for themselves.

This project is scheduled to start towards the end of April 2022 and without your support, we wouldn't be able to meet this deadline.

    Project has begun!

    Today, on Khalsa Panth's birthday, this project began with dismantling a couple of houses. We plan to erect walls on all eight houses and then install the cemented roofs all at once by early next month.

    The project is estimated to be completed by June of this year.


    All projects begin with Ardaas!
