Sri Gnanananda Giri Peetam (SGGP) is an international not for profit organisation headquartered in the United Kingdom. Founded by a renowned lineage of Hindu Saints in the name of the peerless Saint, His Holiness Paramahamsa Parivrajakacharya Jagathguru Sri Gnanananda Giri Swamigal, and currently headed by His Holiness Sathguru Sri Niranjanananda Giri Swamigal, it is in fact a secular organisation that strives to bring upliftment and relief to all of humanity and the world, through many of its global charity projects. In education, SGGP’s aim is to not only provide guidance in the yogic way of life to improve mental and physical well-being, but to also provide funding and grants to those who wish to pursue an education but are unable to do so due to lack of funding, especially those who care about humanity and the environment and have a track record in and commitment towards, serving society selflessly.
