Sojhi, a venture taken by the Sikh Research Institute to increase the effectiveness of Sikh education across the globe embarked on a Sikh education reform approximately 18 months ago. Utilizing the expertise of a team of educators, activists and Sikhi experts, the project produced a curriculum package complete with 300 lesson plans, classroom management tips for teachers, and recommendations on administration of Gurmat and Panjabi Schools across the globe. The 2nd Sikh Education Symposium unveiled Sojhi’s first elementary school resource package for students in Kindergarten to Grade 5 in Washington DC and welcomed its core team and many supporters, project sponsors and well-wishers. The one-day event was opened with the Guru’s word that was brought to the participants by students from the Guru Angad Institute of Sikh Studies, one of the 15 sponsors of Sojhi."
