I am a product of the Sikh Education Council’s programmes so naturally when I came of age I wanted to ‘give back’ in kind. I feel incredibly privileged to have experienced so much through the organisation and aim to provide the same to a new generation.


What Our Partners Say

Working with the Sikh Education Council has been a valuable addition to Singh Sabha Southall’s offering to the Sangat. Their efforts to install displays, facilitate academic events, and provide general guidance has been excellent. I’d recommend them to all Sikh Gurdwareh.
