On October 14, 2005 Sikhnet reported, "A panj (five) of 3HO representatives attended the 58th Annual Non-Governmental Organization (NGO) Conference at United Nations’ headquarters, in New York City, recently. Bibiji Dr. Inderjit Kaur, Mukta Kaur, Dharma Singh, Sat Kirn Kaur, and Sat Mitar Kaur of Healthy Happy Holy Organization (3HO), a UN NGO, joined more than 3,500 people representing 1,160 NGOs from 124 countries in a facilitated dialogue about how NGOs impact efforts for peace, security, human development and human rights. In his welcoming message to participants, Secretary General Kofi Annan stated, 'Partnerships remain the main avenue for progress.' This central theme echoed throughout the Conference as NGOs are considered a crucial piece of the global puzzle to create significant social change. The Secretary General pointed out last year, 'It is people mobilized as you are, more than any government initiative or scientific breakthrough, who can overcome the obstacles to a better world.'"
