UNITED SIKHS began in 1999 when a group of Sikhs from the New York metropolitan area banded together to assist in the socio-economic development of immigrant communities in Queens, New York. Today, UNITED SIKHS is a grass-roots organisation with chapters in America, Asia, Africa and Europe that pursue projects for the spiritual, social and economic empowerment of underprivileged and minority communities.

“We are inspired by mankind's common spiritual origin. We have trust in the wisdom of the Creator. We seek spiritual enlightenment. We aim to live virtuously, modestly and in harmony with nature. We promote unity, justice and human well being.”: These are key insights from the Sikh Religion, which has inspired UNITED SIKHS to carry out projects around the world to adopt a holistic lifestyle characterised by voluntary and selfless dedication (Seva).

UNITED SIKHS provides emergency aid, education, environmental conservation and human rights services at both local and international levels. It is registered in ten countries as a non-governmental organisation (NGO) and has over 1,000 registered volunteers around the world, who carry out 90 percent of its emergency aid work. The main coordination centres are in Australia, Canada, India, Malaysia, Pakistan, the United Kingdom and the United States.
