Founded in 1956, The Kalgidhar Society – Baru Sahib has been working tirelessly towards transforming the lives of rural children through the tool of Value-Based Education. At the same time, Society has placed equal focus on empowering women, providing health care and ensuring social welfare for the vulnerable people in society. With the firm belief that everyone deserves to lead a life of dignity, each initiative of The Kalgidhar Society is embedded in the core thought of ’Bringing Grace to the Human Race’. The Kalgidhar Society initiated its work to bring back the glory of Punjab which is free of drug and alcohol abuse through the tool of education rooted in values. In its quest of fighting drugs with books, the Society has established 129 low-cost CBSE schools and 2 universities. The Kalgidhar Society under its flagship Akal Academies program, is providing modern, value-based education to nearly 70,000 students across rural areas of Punjab, Haryana, Himachal Pradesh, Rajasthan and Uttar Pradesh. Extending a helping hand to all those in need and giving them an opportunity to lead a decent life, the Kalgidhar Society has established teacher training centers, a multi-specialty hospital, drug de-addiction centers, an orphanage, one old age home, and a Center for Distressed Women. Through the years, our work has been recognized globally and models developed by the Society have been adapted across various educational institutions.

With blessings from Sant Baba Attar Singh Ji Maharaj, the establishment of Akal University under the leader ship of Baba Iqbal Singh Ji by the Kalgidhar Trust (Baru Sahib) is culmination of what the Tenth Sikh Guru, Guru Gobind Singh Ji, prophesied about three centuries ago. Akal University has been mandated to carry out activities pertaining to the three basic principles of higher education: Teaching, Learning and Research. The University is successfully running UG (Honours), PG (Honours) and PhD programs in Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Botany, Zoology, English, Punjabi, Psychology, Commerce, Economics, Social sciences, and UG in Sri Guru Granth Sahib Studies. Striving for excellence in teaching and research, the University also offers BCA (Hons), B.Tech. (CSE), MBA and four years integrated B.Sc.-B.Ed./B.A.-B.Ed program. The University has faculty members who are highly qualified with exceptionally good academic records.
