The following is a list in no particular order of some of the best Sikh groups. These groups have done excellent work of parchar on Sikh awareness, political lobbying, and humanitarian relief.
1) Basics of Sikhi
Facebook Page: Everythings 13 Basics of Sikhi
We aim to:
(1) advance the Sikh religion, nationally & globally, for the benefit of the public through the holding of lectures, producing and/or distributing literature on sikhism to enlighten others about the Sikh religion and demystify the message of the Sikh Guru’s. We hope the wisdom of the Sikh Gurus will inspire Sikhs and those of other faiths to live better lives
(2) uplift society by working toward prevention or relief of poverty and slavery anywhere in the world by occasionally providing: grants, items and services to charities, or other organisations working to prevent or relieve poverty and slavery of people irrespective of colour, caste or creed
(3) promote positive Sikh activity in mainstream media, support Sikh Organisations in getting publicity for their events & provide the press with a trusted website for information on Sikh events
(4) create a range of kids orientated sikh books, games, apps & activities and have local sikh toddler and parent playgroups in all towns.
2) Sikh to Inspire
Facebook Page: Sikh to Inspire
At Sikh 2 Inspire we want to share the greatness of Gurbani and the glorious history of the great Gurus who blessed us both with their teachings and their presence. We also have a rich tapestry filled with the lives of Sikhs who have walked the path of love set out by the Gurus that illuminates the Guru’s message.
Our goal is simple, we want to inspire people with this treasure and encourage them to build their relationship with Guru Granth Sahib Ji.
It doesn’t matter if you’ve never heard of Sikhi before, or whether you’ve been travelling Guru Nanak Dev Ji’s path of love for decades, there is so much inspiration we can take, so much to learn and experience.
This path can take us to a place beyond our understanding, but it has to be walked, it has to be experienced. We want to help you take that first step, or that hundredth step, and at the same time we pray that Guru Sahib keeps us walking right alongside you.
Sikh 2 Inspire … aspire to be inspired
3) Sikh Federation UK
Facebook Page: Sikh Federation UK
The organisation was established in September 2003 with the aim of giving Sikhs a stronger political voice by taking an increasing interest in mainstream politics in the UK. We will also provide the Sikhs with a much needed voice at an international level and will be seeking consultative status with the United Nations at the earliest opportunity.
The Sikh Federation UK launched the Sikh Manifesto which gained the support of 165 elected MPs in the 2015 British Parliament
4) Khalsa Aid
Facebook Page: Khalsa Aid
Established in 1999, Khalsa Aid is an international non-profit aid and relief organization founded on the Sikh principles of selfless service and universal love.
Khalsa Aid is a UK Registered Charity (#1080374) with the UK Charities Commission and also has volunteers in North America & Asia. Khalsa Aid has provided relief assistance to victims of disasters, wars, and other tragic events around the world.
Khalsa Aid is committed to selfless seva (service) through Humanitarian Aid work.
Drawing inspiration from Guru Gobind Singh ji who taught us to “recognise the entire human race as one”, Khalsa Aid volunteers are deployed immediately wherever in the world humanitarian aid is needed.
5) United Sikhs
Facebook: United Sikhs
UNITED SIKHS is a UN-affiliated, international non-profit, non-governmental, humanitarian relief, human development and advocacy organization, aimed at empowering those in need, especially disadvantaged and minority communities across the world.
6) Seva 84
In November 1984 over 30,000 Sikhs across India were murdered in the November genocide, leaving thousands of widows and orphans destitute, homeless, and without sustenance as they had lost their families, livelihoods and any form of security and support. 28 years later, the survivors and their families are living in severe poverty in at least 8 colonies situated in and around Delhi. The communities in the colonies have little or no opportunities in many spheres of life including health, education, social development, work skills etc. This has left many in vulnerable states leading to suicidal issues, prostitution, and drug and alcohol addiction.
