Stories of Hope and Struggle 
No. 2022-01

The Stories of Hope and Struggle offer a glimpse into the lives of communities engaging with the Samdhana Institute. Our aim is to give a space for individuals and communities who are striving to nurture the environment, assert their rights, preserve their heritage and/or create a better quality of life for their families, to share their stories. This year’s edition are from partners in Indonesia, Philippines and Myanmar, engaging and struggling despite of, and because of the pandemic. Their experiences tell of the Indigenous and local peoples’ resilience after the Covid-19 crisis in their initiatives on education, land security, health and environmental recovery.
