DERBY, UK—Kaur’s Corner, a UK based charity based on empowering Sikh women, have launched a Pyaar, or love, campaign to join the fight against gender discrimination. “In the UK, we’ve just celebrated Mother’s Day, it’s a fitting time to extend the hand of love to others around the Globe.”
Following their Mother’s Day post where they described the strength, and quality, of many Singhni (initiated females) of the Panth, the Sikh Society, Kaur’s Corner volunteer sevadars have launched the Connect with a UNIQUE Sister campaign stating,
Everybody wants a Mother; everybody wants a wife; but no one wants a Girl Child…
Kaur’s Corner are asking people to fill in the postcards they created, join the Pyaar campaign, and share some Pyaar with a sister from the Unique Home for Girls in Jallandhar. Unique Home is a home set up by Bibi Parkash Kaur and houses 60 girl of various ages who have been abandoned just because they were girls.
So join Kaur’s Corner on the 20th of April, 2014 at the Derby Smagam, and sign a postcard with love!
For those who can’t attend the smagam, feel free to e-mail a message to [email protected] and the Kaur’s Corner volunteer sevadars will write the note on your behalf. Alternatively, write the message by hand, scan in a copy and e-mail it over and they will get it printed onto the postcards.
