"Learning humility, purity and simple-living from those who don't take too much from the earth...
Targetting the problems of hunger, disease and oppression that sadden their lives...
Inspiring in each other trust, confidence and support for one another..."

  Summary

 

 

PSA will work with activists that are engaged in land rights work to strengthen networks and ensure that people’s voices are heard at the national policy level. PSA also supports capacity-building; campaigning, networking, advocacy and lobbying as well as technical support in terms of logistics, campaign support, organising delegations and submissions to various ministries and commissions. Such assistance makes it possible for the groups to effectively reach the State and Central Government bodies and get recognized as pressure groups with dissenting voices and proposals of sustainable alternatives.
