Sikligar Sikh Children Education Project (Nishkam Sikh Welfare Council, Canada)
The first project is the Sikligar Sikh Children Education project. This project is aimed at providing school supplies, books, uniforms, shoes etc to the 351 school going children of the Sikligar Sikh community in Karnataka. As part of this project Nishkam Canada is also assisting with the hiring of after school tuition teachers so that the children that cannot be assisted by their illiterate parents with homework, have other support available to them.
Nishkam Canada requests a monthly donation of C$ 15 that will allow it to support the needy children and allow them to become young, successful men and women.
In 2005, Nishkam Canada was able to support a total of 6 (six) after school teachers for in Banglaore, Nippani, Dharwad, Shigaon and Hubli, all in Karnataka.
