    It was in the Gurdwara, that by the Guru’s grace, two strangers met and the idea of creating a Medical School came together. Sardar Ranjit Singh Hans, who was visiting from Orlando, Florida, met with Sardar Darshan Singh Dhaliwal, who after the Sath Sangat Path where conversing on one February afternoon of 2008. The idea of providing all communities with educational programs to develop de minds of our youngsters had initiated. It was from this reunion, as destined by our Guru’s grace that Panamanian Medical and Management Corporation of Higher Education (PMMC) was envisioned. From this moment on Sardar Darshan Singh Dhaliwal entrusted his son Rattan Singh Dhaliwal, Esq. with help of Sardar Ranjit Hans to set forth the journey of accomplishing was destined to be. With the collaboration of Sardar Ranjit Singh Hans, other members where incorporated and decided, due to the high demand and lack of doctors in the world, to initiate with a Medical Program.

    Remebering Sardar Darshan Singh words that afternoon “If was by the Guru’s Grance that we met this afternoon in his house his Gurdwara, it is also by His Grace that this endeavor will be successful.” No truer word’s where spoken since it quickly became obvious that we where blessed when we received the cooperation of one of the best universities in Central America; Universidad Latina de Panama.

    The Panamanian Medical and Management Corporation of Higher Education set forth the plans to present youngsters with the best education possible. Starting with the best possible English based Medical Degree for licensing in the United States, Asia and Europe to other degrees that will include Dentistry, Nursing, Pharmacy, Economics, Finance, and Computer Science in their own Campus will follow. In recognition of the needs and demand of our youngsters and as envisioned by our Guru Gobind Singh, who said that all Sikh’s must develop both our physical and mental capabilities the Panamanian Sikh Community decided to cooperate. Remembering Guru Gobind Singh’s teaching the Civic Society Guru Nanak Sahib, entrusted with the administration of the Gurdwara Gurur Nank Sahib, decided to grant a five thousand dollar ($5,000.00) scholarship toward the tuition of any youngster of the Sikh community world wide who wishes to enroll in the English Medical degree program of PMMC in Panama. All of the students of the Sikh community world wide who enroll in the medical program in Panama will receive the full cooperation of the Gurdwara and of the community.

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!
