Mission Statement

S.E.V.A. is a service organization dedicated to helping improve the local community and raising awareness of Sikhs and their beliefs. This is to be done through frequent involvement in activities for the betterment of the local community and the hosting of service and awareness events. S.E.V.A. is guided by the principles of selfless-service, honesty, discipline and meditation.


The Sikh Española Volunteer Association (SEVA) is an organization of Sikhs who wish to do seva (selfless service) in and around the Española area. We began as a group of Sikhs discussing the idea of hosting an event to serve the local community with the idea to also raise the awareness of Sikhs. Upon meeting as a formal group we decided upon participating in monthly service opportunities as well. We started with a board of 6 members: Deva Singh, Gurujot Singh, Hari Singh, Prabhu Singh, Rion, and Sita Kaur. We are still in the early stages of our organization and are looking forward to a great future of service and awareness.
