    Sikhs for Service

    Sikhs for Service, a community organization dedicated to serve the Lower Mainland, has established of The Bhagat Puran Singh Sikh Community Bursary for students with disabilities at Simon Fraser University.

    Four SFU Alumni have worked with the Lower Mainland Sikh community to raise more than $20,000 for this endowment over the last year.

    With this help, Simon Fraser University will award yearly bursaries to students with disabilities that demonstrate financial need.

    The impetus of this project came from a desire to honour and continue the spirit of the work of the late Bhagat Puran Singh, who spent his life caring for the poor, sick and disabled.

    Singh was also an ardent healthcare and environmental activist as well as a champion of social justice.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
