Sikh Channel Aid was established in the United Kingdom in 2013 as a branch of Sikh Channel Community Broadcasting Company Limited (Charity No.1136163) in response to the humanitarian requirements of the global Sikh community.
Sikh Channel Aid’s work is governed by the teachings of the Sikh faith, such as compassion, empathy, generosity and helping others in need. This is implemented through emer-gency responses and eliminating poverty and its causes by developing innovative and sustainable solutions that enable individuals and their communities to live with dignity.
Sikh Channel Aid is driven by the principles of Dhan Dhan Guru Nanak Dev Ji of praying, working hard and sharing ones earnings.
Our projects have and will continue in the pursuit of bet-terment for all of mankind and unite the global Sikh community.
I have been given the opportunity to put principles of the Sikh faith into practice and help the neglected and destitute achieve dignity.
We promote sustainable economic and social development by working with local communities to eradicate poverty, illiteracy and diseas.
ur motto is ‘faith inspired relief ’ which visibly translates the fact that we also respond to emergencies and natural disasters, helping people in crisis. Sikh Channel Aid reaches out to those communities that önd it extremely difficult to receive help. We support the vulnerable in society, the neglected and the misplaced in a non-political, non-sectarian and non-exclusionary manner.
The village Jhangola came to the attention of Sikh Channel on 30 January 2015 upon the news that the entire village had decided to boycott the Delhi assembly elections citing the basic lack of amenities behind their collective move.
With an almost exclusively Sikh population of over 10,000 villagers, Jhangola came up as a home for refugees who came to India from Pakistan during the partition. The land was originally allotted to thirty-six Sikh families from Pakistan.
