Description

iGurudwara was born from humble beginnings. The idea for a virtual platform for the Sikh community initially evolved from visits to the local Gurudwara. There was a strong need to keep the community informed about current news and upcoming events and help others. The idea then evolved in to creating a virtual platform for the Sikh community, where information could be accessed and shared from a single location. iGurudwara is the biggest virtual platform for the Sikh community and aims to bridge the information gap for the older members of the community by keeping them updated on current events, news and services without leaving their homes. The platform also benefits and supports the younger generation by teaching them the concept of spiritual values and working towards a better and more sustainable world. Community work and helping the disadvantaged is a very important aspect of iGurudwara. Imagine if everyone in the world did an act of kindness or performed one good deed per day. This planet, our home, would be a much better place to live in. The team at iGurudwara appreciates your ongoing support and feedback as we continue to grow and support the community. Our vision is for a healthy, compassionate and a vibrant Sikh community. Our mission is therefore to ensure the Sikh community has practical tools for accomplishing those visionary ends. We do this work by volunteering, engaging, mobilizing and supporting our community, to ensure we all have the means to make our world an amazing place.
