ABOUT US

The World Peace Mission Trust came into being in the year 1991. The Trust is engaged in the education of the most needy -yet most deprived- section of the society i.e. the children of poor construction workers as well as maids/domestic servants. These poor workers donot have the wherewithal and resources to send their wards to regular schools in the beginning for the threshold education. The Trust is catering to the underprivileged children of these workers who normally reside near the construction sites or the peripheral villages of Chandigarh & Mohali. As on date, about 400 children are getting education at our 10 Literacy Centres.

OUR FOUNDER

Our Founder, Sardar Avtar Singh espoused the cause of World Peace. His ideas drew appreciation from luminaries such as His Holiness The Dalai Lama, ex-PM Inder Kumar Gujral and many other personalities. He wrote in English, Urdu and Gurmukhi on means to alleviate the suffering of humanity and reached out to world leaders such as UN Secretary General U Thant. He had a dream -"a boundaryless world", which seems so much of a reality as of today. He spoke of cutting down expenditure on the armies and arsenal by Nations of the world and instead, investing in the education and poverty allievation.
He was a man of remarkable mathematical agility, had knowledge of Vedic Maths, an astronomer who knew the Cosmic world and could comment on Dr Stephen Hawking's Big Bang Theory. He was a keen Trekker and a swimmer of repute. He loved playing Chess, mind games and solve puzzles. His book in English titled "How to shed worries in 24 hours" was extremely popular. A simple man with noble thoughts and austere manners was a one man crusader till he met like minded people in J.R. Shastri, Prof. Surinder Suri, Prof. Nirmal Dutt in 1990-91. Thus began the journey of a thousand miles!
