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.
