The changes Sukhmani wants to see in the Gurdwara:

  • To see the youth involved in Seva
    • Helping not only within the Sikh community. Seva means to help others, so we should help not only the Sikh community, but also the communities that we live in.
    • Use donations not only for the betterment of the Gurdwara, but to help the community.
      • Punjabi/Gurmat/Kirtan classes
      • Help families who can’t afford to have langars/kirtans
      • Create a scholarship for students who perform Seva not only within the Sikh Community and the Gurdwara, but within the local community as well.

She said she is running to help create change in the Khalsa Diwan Society. And to also prove that youth can create change and make a difference to help improve the community.
