Sikh Human Development Foundation (SHDF), a non-profit organization, set up in 1999, helps bright but financially disadvantaged students in Punjab and neighboring areas to rise to their full potential through higher education and training.

SHDF has provided over 7,300 scholarships so far. Our goal for 2020-21 is to award no less than 650 scholarships. We are reaching out to the DVN online community to join us as we continue with our mission of transforming lives through higher education. 

By improving the access of underprivileged youth to higher education and making it possible for them to become doctors, engineers, tech experts and the like, we seek to minimize their frustration, anger and their potential drift to drugs, alcoholism, or crime. Every student helped is not only a life transformed, but it is also uplifting the entire family and eventually transforming the nature and the status of the civil society in Punjab and other states wherever SHDF operates.

A lump sum or a monthly donation (Dasvandh) of $20, 30 or 50 (or any amount - remember no amount is too small) will go a long way in helping us to carry out our goal.

A rapidly rising number of eligible students are putting their faith in SHDF and seeking financial help.

SHDF thanks all donors for their valuable contributions. The challenge is rather big, and we need wider and broader community support.

Education has a transforming power and a multiplier effect.

If they succeed, we all succeed. We need your help. They need your help.

    Project Update

    It was another successful year for the SHDF scholarship program. This year, with your generous support, we were able to award 656 scholarships, compared to 550 in 2017; a 20% increase from last year! Scholarship checks were distributed in ceremonies organized by our partner organization, Nishkam Sikh Welfare Council, in cities of Amritsar, Faridkot, Chandigarh, Ludhiana and New Delhi. Majority of the scholarship recipients were female students (80%) and, that too, mostly from rural areas. These children are studying in disciplines like medicine, engineering, agriculture, nursing, information technology, business administration, law and several other subjects.

    To help our scholarship recipients secure good jobs, a two-day soft skills and personality development workshop was organized at Guru Kashi University, Talwandi Sabo, Punjab on April 27, and 28.

    Thank you for supporting the SHDF Scholarship Program and transforming lives through higher education. Your generosity makes it all possible!

    Project Update

    Thank you very much for your continuing support of the SHDF Scholarship Program. It means a lot to all of us.
     
    Your gift will not only be instrumental in transforming lives of many disadvantaged children, it will also provide added inspiration and bring us closer to our goal of granting 650 scholarships this year, compared to 550 given last year. In addition, every student helped is not only a life transformed, but it is also uplifting the entire family and, largely, the community.
     
    We have so far granted 5,091 scholarships. More than 2,700 scholarship recipients have graduated and found good jobs. 65% of the scholarships were granted to students from rural areas of Punjab, and 74% of these scholarships have gone to female students.
     
    Our goal is to empower our youth in Punjab and neighboring areas, to give them the foundation of education. It is a wonderful cause that will make our community grow today and for the future.
     
    Once again, thank you for being a valued partner. We cannot do this vital community work without you.
