Community led efforts bring well being in villages of Rajasthan

Sahyog Sansthan in Udaipur, Rajasthan India is a community based organization that primarily supports a grassroots network of Indigenous farmers in one of the driest regions of the country. Rooted in Gandhian thought, Sahyog promotes swaraj – or self reliance – as one of their key tenets, encouraging communities to become less dependent on markets, government, and NGOs. One of Sahyog’s key strategies is to organize local communities into collectives that serve as a vehicle for self-led programs. Sahyog’s work with such groups includes topics like water security, drought mitigation, revival of common pastureland, agroecology, and savings. The below photos capture some of Sahyog’s work in community-led development and ecological restoration over the past year.

#BlackLivesMatter – We Will Not Be Intimidated Into Silence

Over the past few weeks, Thousand Currents and other funders have been the targets of hateful disinformation campaigns and threats from far-right extremists, white nationalists and right-wing media. These attacks are aimed at discrediting the Black-led, multiracial mass movement of millions of people around the world who are speaking out against state-sanctioned violence, anti-Blackness, racism and white supremacy.
