Kiva Lending Team: SIKH SEWADARS
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.
SEWADAR is a Punjabi word for a volunteer who offers his/her services to a Gurdwara or to the Community free of charge. It a term used to refer to a person who performs SEWA (Work, Service or assistance of any kind) without looking for any reward/ payment of any kind for doing the SEWA.
