Please Give Today: Your Donation Helps Us Continue The Work That No One Else Is Doing and Gives Hope to Victim Families

(Pleasanton, CA)

Dear Supporter,

Indian security forces abducted Narayan Singh in 1992 from a market in Bathinda. Police beat Narayan Singh with the butts of their rifles, and tortured him in detention. A witness in detention saw police officials carrying Narayan Singh—they had tortured him so severely he could not walk. Security forces also persecuted the family, forcing them to abandon their home for three years. Gurpej Singh, Narayan Singh’s brother, says, “What happened with us should not happen with anyone else. If it does happen with anyone, we should all work together to help each other.” Ensaaf will represent his voice and many others like it before governments, the UN, and the media to build consensus among the international community and support for survivors. We need your support to bring about this change.

2018 Will Be The Year We Transform Our Work

Ensaaf has been working diligently to document these atrocities. We’ve been to more than 12,000 villages, reaching every village and urban area in Punjab. We’ve progressed to the next phase of our documentation project and started building an interactive data visualization site to store all of the information, and get that information out to the public and government officials throughout the world. The evidence we present will shift the debate from one of denial to acknowledging crimes against humanity in Punjab and strengthening future legal proceedings.

Today, we’re asking you to make an end of year donation. Every dollar you give, up to $40,000, will be matched through January 10th.

Help us reach our goal, and share this message via Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

Your support can change the ending to Narayan Singh’s story and for so many others. Hear Narayan Singh’s family; help them get justice.


Sukhman and Jaskaran,
Ensaaf Co-Founders
