Ensaaf has set out to create searchable, tagged video archive of 200 oral histories, exploring key human rights themes and survivor perspectives. Each video will be edited and shared as part of the Virtual Site of Conscience Project (VSC) on the Decade of Disappearances in Punjab. The VSC will include an immersive sensory experience, data visualizations, documentary films and video testimonials, a portrait gallery, an advocacy interface, a human rights archive, and a resource center. The video testimonials present the unique oral history of each survivor’s story. They need your help to produce these videos! Check out ALL of Ensaaf’s new projects here!

To increase the farmer interest and help the demand-supply of organic food in Punjab, EcoSikh has started organic farming training workhops in Punjab at the Bhagat Puran Singh Natural Farms in Amritsar. Their goal is to guide Punjabi farmers on how to reduce farming budgets by adopting organic farming methods. Your donation will go toward transporting each farmer to & from Amritsar, providing a 6-hour training by Rajbir Singh, an organic farming expert from Pingalwara, Amritsar and serving refreshments. A recurring donation of $30 can work to train 10 farmers! Check out their latest project here.
