THE JARAWAS FOUNDATION'S FOUR GOALS
- A mission to raise awareness, by obtaining as many signatures as possible for the petition, by campaigning in the media and on social networks, with public and governmental institutions, organizations and NGOs.
- A mission of representation and legal action to have the fundamental rights of the Jarawas and Afro-Asian peoples of the Andaman Islands recognized: the right to land, the right to self-determination, human and citizens' rights, in India and in the world, with governmental institutions and governments, at the UN and take legal action if necessary.
- A unifying mission to bring together indigenous peoples and their organizations around a common project, an encyclopedia in the form of films, photos, texts and testimonies. The aim is to gather around the Jarawas, the original lifestyles of the first humans and share this knowledge with the general public.
- An educational mission to schools, colleges, high schools and universities to promote the Jarawas and their way of life.
ABOUT THE JARAWAS FOUNDATION
We met the Jarawas and with their permission we made a documentary film "Our Forgotten Souls" to make their people and their cause known. We have launched a petition to protect them that has gathered more than 270,000 signatures but we want to do more. Because there is an urgent need for the Jarawas and other Afro-Asian peoples, the Onges and the Sentinels. Their ethnocide is ongoing and organized by the Indian government. Watch the video.
We created the JARAWAS foundation to bring together people of good will to help us campaign for their protection, to have their rights recognized and to transmit their humanist and universal message of peace and harmony.
Thanks a lot
