Women are the Center of our focus as we strongly believe that women are the foundation/root of every family, stronger the root, stronger the tree.
Here at International Sikh Council for Women (ISCW), we are driven by a single goal; to do our part in making the world a better place for all women.
Kar Seva (Selfless Service) has been a paramount teaching in Sikhism, therefore International Sikh Council for Women is striving to dedicate their service to women all over the world for a better today, and brighter tomorrow!

Women are our main area of focus. Through in-depth assessments, we reach out to the ultra-needy and go through all the area of their needs before extending our support to them. We access their need based on financial need, trade need or help with everyday living and providing them with all the resources needed in order to feel safe, and independent.
ISCW takes pride in acknowledging that our volunteers are from the same communities as the women we serve. This helps us understand the needs and challenges faced by women and also about the opportunities for us to step in and make a difference in their lives.
