We believe that the seeds planted through education can empower and inspire individuals to  make the world a better place for all.


Mata Sahib Kaur Educational Trust (MSKET) is a volunteer-led  charitable organisation that holds these core values at its heart. 


We aim to promote, increase and sustain individual and collective knowledge of the immense contribution of Mata Sahib Kaur Ji to the Sikh faith. The life and wisdom of Mata Sahib Kaur Ji are used as a basis for projects that benefit all, regardless of faith. 


MSKET also spreads awareness of the teachings of Guru Granth Sahib Ji (principal scripture of Sikhism), for the enhancement and improvement of the worldwide community.  

Furthermore, our charitable organisation pursues acts of voluntary service which serves to uplift all humanity and in doing so, practise the Sikh concept of Sarbat Da Bhalla (“may everyone prosper”).

Mata Sahib Kaur Ji (1681-1747) was and still is a truly inspiring individual.  She was a leader and humanitarian who dedicated her life to  spiritualism, fighting injustice and improving the lives of the  impoverished. Though she carried out her life’s work in India, her impact is global and her influence timeless. 


She assisted everyone  who entered her court, regardless of religion, caste or creed. For  example, she uplifted poverty-stricken Hindu and Muslim families when  they asked for financial help, covering all the costs and preparations  for girls’ marriages. She also provided relief to drought-stricken  farmers, by having wells dug in their villages - alongside numerous  other projects. 

Another  noteworthy achievement was Mata Sahib Kaur Ji’s leadership of the Sikh  nation. A woman in a position of power, during a period of endemic  inequality and discrimination was extremely rare. Yet Mata Sahib Kaur Ji led the Sikhs for forty years, using her power and influence to benefit humankind.  


At  MSKET, we are motivated by Mata Sahib Kaur Ji’s selfless, compassionate  and inclusive nature and we use these qualities to inspire us in our  voluntary work.

Guru Nanak’s 550th Prakash Purab Educational Camp

In November 2019, MSKET organised and ran a camp for youngsters. Children learned about Guru Nanak Dev Ji’s immense contribution to the world and how Guru Ji’s philosophies can uplift them and the lives of others. Inspiring workshops, opportunities for selfless service (seva), arts and crafts and Nerf Gun Wars made this a camp to remember!
