The Harman foundation was established in memory of Harman Preet Singh to honour his legacy and what he stood for. Harman was born on the 9th of February 1985 to proud parents Harinder and Maninder. Living in Punjab, India for the first 6 years of his life, culture remained engrained in Harman’s morals and ethics his entire life.
Moving to Australia in 1991, Harman faced many challenges being a Sikh boy in a vastly different community. In time, he came to flourish and strive despite adversity in his life. Harman graduated from the University of NSW with a double degree in commerce and law and went on to develop a career through hard work and perseverance in the finance industry.
Tragically while returning from a holiday, on the 5th of October 2012, he passed away during a motor vehicle accident, leaving his parents and siblings shocked and beyond devastation. What inspired the creation of the Harman foundation was Harman’s strong moral character that never wavered throughout his life and the immense support that surrounded the family as soon as the tragedy struck. Harman Preet Singh was a devotee in the purest sense. His purpose was simple, to serve those closest to him, and he knew that he could only truly serve if he was firstly the shining pillar of his family. A pure soul, humble in his speech and actions, lives on in our hearts.
