Who are we
Gurpuri Foundation was established on 27 Oct 2000 to provide shelter and care to children who had none. It is now an established, non-profit provider of care services for children in Malaysia. Committed to advocating for disadvantaged children, the foundation identifies areas of greatest need for children and youth, and works in partnership with the community to meet those needs.
Gurpuri Foundation was founded as part of a nationwide movement to get orphaned children into a loving and caring environment where they can blossom into responsible adults.
Giani Sukhdaiv Singh Ji with the support of the Malaysian Sikh community established Gurpuri Foundation. Gurpuri Foundation runs with support from the Malaysian Sikh Community and well-wishers throughout the world.
Economic changes in the last two decades have affected the community in Malaysia. In the families who were in the margins of poverty level, the lack of economic opportunities and strong social influences affected them severely. This led to a growing number of families facing monetary problems, which in turn affected their children.
Some concerned members of the local community came forward to create a place in every mind and heart where each child has dignity and respect. To provide a home and care for the children of the families, with the objective of motivating these children by making them responsible citizens of the future through proper care and education.
Gurpuri Foundation presently provides for the needs of 47 children. We humbly invite you to join in the development of these children. You may provide us with services or expertise to help develop the children and youth at Gurpuri.
Donations to the foundation can be made on a monthly basis or on a lump sum basis. All monetary contribution is utilised for the children in areas of personal development and necessities. In accordance with our tradition, a monthly prayer on a joint basis will be held for our kind donors and their families.
How you can help
Your generosity and care can make a difference to ensure that these disadvantaged children are provided with the necessities of life in a good up-bringing.
The time has come for the community to give these unfortunate children a better future. At Gurpuri, the children’s wants and needs will be taken care of. They will have their basic day to day needs looked after from shelter to clothing, food and social skills.
Over and above this their education would be given an upmost attention. Our aim is that when they leave Gurpuri they are equipped with all the necessary skills to be good citizens and exemplary members of the community.
The idea is not only to give these children of ours the basic needs of up bringing but to provide the best, one can to transform them into noble citizens.
At present there are 60 children (updated as of Sept 2010) who have been accepted by Gurpuri. These children have started over a new leaf for a better life tomorrow. We are in need of financial and social assistance to make our this dream into a reality.
Any assistance provided is truly appreciated. However at this point in time Gurpuri needs financial help.
You can donate your contributions by sending us a cheque in favour of “Gurpuri Foundation” on a lump sum basis or on a month to month contribution. We also welcome donations of groceries or other essential equipment. We also appreciate if you could bring to us cases of needy children to be enrolled into Gurpuri.
