Our Story - The Sikh Foundation

The Foundation works to:

  • Pass on the essence of Sikh heritage to the growing Sikh diaspora in the west, particularly the youth.
  • Introduce to the world the progressive ethics, lyrical mysticism and heroism of the Sikhs.
  • Contribute Sikh perspective to issues of common human concern.
  • Generate the highest quality resources for the academic and artistic study of Sikhism.
  • Foster Sikh culture across the disciplines through the tradition of critical and creative thinking that gave birth to the Sikh faith.
