Gurpuri Foundation (580030-H) was established on 27 Oct 2000 to provide shelter and care to children who had none. It is now an established, nonprofit provider of care services for children in Malaysia. Committed to advocating for underprivileged children, the foundation identifies areas of greatest need for children & 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 and neglected 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 60 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.
