WHO SET UP THIS CHARITY?
The founder member of this charity is Mr Ranjeet Singh, a successful businessman, loving father, devoted son and brother and a passionate believer in the Sikh community. He was born in Coventry in 1974 but as with many Sikhs born in this country, his parents came to the UK in the late 50’s and early 60’s in search of a better life for their future children. Ranjeet is therefore the 1st generation of Sikhs born in this country and from humble beginnings and with God’s will he has been fortunate enough to build his own business within the financial world. It is for this reason and having reached the position that he has in the world of commerce, he has now made his mission in life to give back to the Sikh community and to help those less fortunate than he is.
There are two further entirely committed trustees of the charity who give their time, energy and resources whenever necessary as part of their Seva for this charity. However any Sikh (or non-Sikh) is welcome if they genuinely believe in our cause and so we welcome all volunteers to help us to deliver our all-important message.
WHY DID WE SET UP THIS CHARITY?
We hope to re-educate all communities about what Sikhism actually means and to eradicate the misconceptions, non-truths and unjustified fears. How does Sikhism sit with other religions and does it support or contradict them? Can we all live harmoniously in this world with different religious ideologies?
These are all questions that we hope to answer and this education begins in schools so that all of our children (Sikhs and non-Sikhs) can learn a more practical application to some of the misrepresented and inaccurate information that is being taught in schools today and has been for so many years.
Our goal is to reinvigorate the passion once again for Religious Education within the national curriculum and to ignite excitement for children so that they want to learn. However learn not only about the Sikh religion but to learn to appreciate the differences within the other religious in order to promote racial harmony and mutual understanding.
