I’m wondering if you can help us with this at all? 

 

We want to reach out to young Sikhs for this unique leadership programme which is about empowering young adults to innovate and lead new spaces where faith and social action come together as one. We think this is a great match with Sikh values!  

·  Could you help us publicise it? Could it go in your email bulletin and in any other networks you have? 

·  Can you recommend it to any individuals who might like it? 

·  And here’s the link to post on Facebook, Twitter, etc.

Thank you so much!

Warm wishes
