The Sikh Nari Manch UK

In 1998 the renowned Sikh scholar, author and musician, Bibi Gurdev Kaur was inspired to form a group for Sikh Women in UK, which would have the purpose of empowering and educating them in the greatness and depth of Sikhism, and enabling them to address all issues affecting their lives as Sikhs in the UK. Hence the Sikh Nari Manch UK (SNM) was established.

Bibi Gurdev Kaur OBE strongly believes that "If you educate a man, you educate one individual but if you educate a women, you educate the whole family and in the long run the whole socitey benefits". It is crucial that as modern day women we should assess our role as Sikhs as well as our knowledge of Sikhism and realise the potential we have in shaping the lives of our families and children as British Sikhs, keeping our identies but developing community cohesion according to the Sikh tenet of "Surbut Da Bhalla" (Welfare of All).

The SNM is  a registered charity, and is therefore constantly looking for sponsorship to continue its community projects. If you can support us in any way or have any comments about our work please contact or write to us at our contact address.
