Can You Help Us?

Already a whopping $4,700+ of personal money and over 12,000 hours have gone into The Sikher Project to date!

In that time we have:

  • Created the world’s most accurate Gurbani database, GurbaniDB, which is also a platform for software developers to build new Gurbani apps
  • Translated and transliterated the Guru Granth Sahib into all the major 52 world languages (although its only a machine translation for now)
  • Transliterated the Guru into all the major 22 language scripts with 99% accuracy, so everyone at this point in time can now read the Guru in their own language and get a flavour of its meaning too, irrespective of language!
  • Started to gather a worldwide translation team, to improve the accuracy of our machine translations
  • Started a repository/wiki of the best Gurbani files and most accurate information on Guru Granth Sahib and other Sikh Scriptures from across the Internet
  • Started a project to produce a beautifully illustrated Nitnem Gutka in multiple languages
  • Revolutionised the world of Gurbani software by introducing innovative features which are now incorporated into the most popular Gurbani software like SikhiToTheMAX and Search Gurbani Desktop Version

But… we now need YOUR help to raise £15,000 a year to continue to develop and expand our mission!

Your donation would be going towards the upcoming projected costs, and we shall release full accounts about where the money was actually spent so you can be sure its going towards our crucial developments in digital Gurbani. We are looking for 25 Gold subscribers giving £50 a month, to help us reach our donation target of £15,000 yearly:

So far £1007.47 of £15,000 raised. 14 people donated.

Currently: 1 Iron Donator of £10/Month. Still Required: 24 Gold Donators of £25/Month
