Help us reach $600,000 by December 31!

Dear Kiva Lender,

Kiva facilitates loans to more than 4,000 borrowers every week, but since Kiva doesn't take a fee on your loans we rely on donations from lenders like you to keep doing this important work. If every Kiva lender seeing this banner pitched in $20 for our Donation Drive, we'd hit our goal of $600,000 by Dec 31! Your support helps us make a global impact.

In appreciation, Chelsa Bocci, Sr. Director, Community

We loan because...
SIKHISM is founded on principles of "Sarbat da bhalla" - working towards the "common good of all". For SIKHS, this means reaching out to serve and uplift all of humanity as an expression or devotion to the Creator. Many other Sikh institutes, such as Kar SEWA, Guru-ka-Langar, Kirtan, Paath, etc., depend on the performance of SEWA by many in the congregation. So the principles of SEWA underpin many Sikh values - such is the importance given to SEWA in SIKHISM.

About us
