Say Yes, So We Wont Have to Say No

UNITED SIKHS



Say YES, So We Don't Have to say NO

 

UNITED SIKHS has never knowingly said 'NO' to a cry for help. Say 'YES' to our appeal, so we won't have to say 'NO' to those in need. We believe we can't fight injustice for some and give injustice to others, by looking the other way. Our work has grown in our eight chapters across four continents. We need your help to raise $500,000 for our International Civil and Human Rights advocacy fund and our Humanitarian Disaster Relief Fund, which is depleted as a result of an active year of advocacy and disaster relief. Disasters affect millions of people and change their lives forever. You can make sure the change is not so painful. Your gift brings relief and rights to the needy.

Our Mission

To transform underprivileged and minority communities and individuals into informed and vibrant members of society through civic, educational and personal development programs, by fostering active participation in social and economic activity.

UNITED SIKHS is also an avenue for networking between like-minded organisations to establish and nurture meaningful projects and dialogues - whether social, cultural or political- to promote harmony, understanding and reciprocity in our villages, towns and cities.

UNITED SIKHS is a coalition of organisations and individuals, who share a common vision based on the belief that there is no greater endeavour than to serve, empower and uplift fellow beings. The core of our philosophy is an unwavering commitment to civic service and social progress on behalf of the common good.

Accordingly, UNITED SIKHS has sought to fulfil its mission not only by informing, educating and uplifting fellow beings but also by participating in cross-cultural and political exchanges to ensure that the promises and benefits of democracy are realized by all.

We at UNITED SIKHS believe that the development of enlightened and progressive societies can be made possible by socially conscious groups of people who make a commitment to develop and direct human potential. Our work, efforts and achievements stand as a testament to our faith in this vision.
