UNITED SIKHS’ international civil and human rights awareness project aim to promote an equal and just society through proactive advocacy. We believe that society can avoid or mitigate conflict through awareness that encourages the public and authorities to grant, observe and practise civil and human rights.
The Sikh Aid team provides non-partisan global humanitarian disaster relief services, which not only provide immediate aid but also rehabilitation help to the needy. The team also runs projects to help eradicate poverty and works towards creating a healthier and happier world. The Sikh Aid Directorate has expanded to include blood and health drives.
UNITED SIKHS believes in empowering individuals and groups to help them attain their full potential and become active participants in society. Empowerment occurs largely through education, training and community development projects. UNITED SIKHS aims to encourage people to participate in the decision-making processes in their local community as well as taking their place in the international arena.
The grounding principle of UNITED SIKHS’ Multifaith work is “if you don’t see God in all, you don’t see God at all”. The organisation is committed to working with other faiths and traditions, to advance a just and peaceful world. UNITED SIKHS is an active participant in international dialogue on multifaith issues, and specifically strives to improve the understanding and treatment of minority religions, traditions and beliefs.
