|Enrol Now for UNITED SIKHS Miri Piri Camps in Michigan and London|
London, UK and Michigan USA – UNITED SIKHS Miri Piri camps in London and Michigan will be held this month and it is still not too late to enrol. The London camp, which is a day camp this weekend, will be held on 1st and 2nd Aug hosted by the Central London Gurdwara and the Michigan camp will be a week long camp from Aug 16th to 22nd
Both camps are for the whole family, and are aimed at promoting Gatka (Sikh martial art) and Gurmat (Sikh principles).
“We aim to motivate people of all ages to take up Gatka and we will do follow up weekly training sessions at the Central London Gurdwara to ensure a Gatka akhara could be set up at the Gurdwara, “ said Lakhvinder Singh, one of the London Miri Piri camp organizers.
There is no strict age limit except that any child under seven will have to be accompanied by a parent or guardian. We encourage parents to attend the camp too where they could learn something within their own group in the camp, whilst their children attend separate sessions with their peers.
Jagpreet Singh, a recent graduate in Transportation Designing, from Italy, who will be attending the Michigan camp, said, “UNITED SIKHS is creating a class of the next generation, where people would help-respect-befriend every one they meet. At the camp, we will be brought out of our TV rooms and into the real world enjoying the company of our peers in the surrounds of a retreat.”
Empowerment and Education
To transform underprivileged and minority communities and individuals into informed and vibrant members of society through civic, educational and personal development programs, by fostering active participation in social and economic activity.
UNITED SIKHS is also an avenue for networking between like-minded organisations to establish and nurture meaningful projects and dialogues - whether social, cultural or political- to promote harmony, understanding and reciprocity in our villages, towns and cities.
UNITED SIKHS is a coalition of organisations and individuals, who share a common vision based on the belief that there is no greater endeavour than to serve, empower and uplift fellow beings. The core of our philosophy is an unwavering commitment to civic service and social progress on behalf of the common good.
Accordingly, UNITED SIKHS has sought to fulfil its mission not only by informing, educating and uplifting fellow beings but also by participating in cross-cultural and political exchanges to ensure that the promises and benefits of democracy are realized by all.
We at UNITED SIKHS believe that the development of enlightened and progressive societies can be made possible by socially conscious groups of people who make a commitment to develop and direct human potential. Our work, efforts and achievements stand as a testament to our faith in this vision.
