Waheguru jee ka khalsa, Waheguru jee ke fateh!
As you may or may not know, Punjab is suffering from a major drug problem that has destroyed the lives of many young people. Some studies have indicated that as much as 70% of the youth of Punjab is addicted to some form of drug. Punjab, the birthplace of Sikhism and the only Sikh majority state in India, has become a home to those addicted to heroin, prescription drugs, and alcohol.
Our Gurmat Education Program has been working to combat this issue by educating young Sikh children about their history, providing them with a deeper sense of community and a collection of positive role models to look up to. In doing so, we hope to keep these young children away from drugs and alcohol so that they can achieve their full potential.
