With your support, this year we will release our new animations in a bi-lingual format. Whenver SikhNet releases a new animation in English, we simultaneously release the same animation in Punjabi.
Back in the day, Sikh education for children was done by the grandparents and village elders. Today exposure to Sikh history and teachings is less common and it's sometimes hard to know how to apply it to modern life.
Our passion with SikhNet Stories has been to provide Sikh history and lessons in sakhis, or story format. Because there are so many kids growing up in English speaking communities, our stories have been provided in English. We have over 125 stories in English. But we have had MANY requests through the years to also provide SikhNet stories in Punjabi.
What We're Doing
Our first newly dubbed animation, will be a major production coming up which we are very proud of. It is a short animated story about the fearless shaheed Bibi Sharan Kaur which teaches Sikh girls to stand up for themselves.
We are also in the midst of producing our first story series, where shaheeds will spiritually guide children by telling them stories. Last, but not least, we are scripting another series of stories of Guru Nanak in the middle east which will expose classic sakhis, as well as share lesser told times in Guruji's life.
Your Dasvandh Helps Us Reach Our Goals
Our goal is to animate and release at least SIX more stories in English and Punjabi during 2023. Your contribution of any amount will help us continue this important work. Thank you!
