Our Gurmat education programs educate young Sikhs about the history of Sikhism and introduces various Sikh principles into their lives. In addition to this, we train the children in traditional martial arts and raise awareness of various social issues and the dangers of drug and alcohol abuse.
Our hope is that by teaching young Sikhs about their heritage, providing a sense of community, and presenting them with positive role models, we will be able to encourage them to be more productive with their lives and prevent them from going down the wrong path.
We started with just one after school academy in Ludhiana, but now several years later we have 9 centers that educate over 370 children across 33 villages. With your support, we can continue to operate these academies and open up new centers to serve more communities.
