The Focus Punjab initiative
Focus Punjab currently assists 250 families who have been directly affected by the events of 1984. The main breadwinners of the family were either killed in the violence of June 1984 or disappeared in false police encounters that followed. Most of the families have no other means of earning an income and our pensions program provides much needed support.
The repercussions of 1984 also continue to affect the next generation. Many children are unable to attend school because their family are unable to pay the fees. Focus Punjab are assisting 190 children with their educational needs. These project are ONLY possible with the support of the Sangat.
