Helping others is self-satisfaction. No expectation in return is volunteering for humanity
The welfare of each individual leads to the welfare of all
The key to happiness turns through our actions
The time is always right to do the right thing


We are on a mission to empower and uplift every section of society, ensuring a better living and bringing cohesion.

We believe in the journey of following a tradition of “Sarbat da Bhala” (welfare of all) which is one of the core values of Sikhism. The spiritual message of Guru Nanak, “Kirat Karo (To earn); Naam Japo (To meditate) – Vand Chakko” (To share) has transformed many lives in plights. We are just practicing that selfless spirit in our actions.
