As Sikhism is a unique religion, it owns a remarkable concept of ‘Wand Chhakna’. Hence, believing in this distinctive concept of giving something for the welfare of the needy or less fortunate by the pockets of those bestowed with God, we believe in cooperative and corporate living.
Without selfish motives, we are determined to share the wealth and the knowledge of God with deserving people to eliminate poverty of mind as well as body. With the aim for social and economic equality of everyone through social responsibility, we feel duty-bound to share our food and earnings with the people who cannot help themselves.
We thank our supporters and donors for being with us to make this aim a success.
