Sankranti e.V. was founded in 2012 in Berlin. We are a small association and all members work transparently and on a voluntary basis. We try to keep running costs to a minimum so that as much money as possible reaches those who really need it.

It is very important to us that we use your donations responsibly – in other words, we make sure we don’t waste any money. In order to save money, we do all our own advertising and design work. Many thanks Bettina Grohnert from Berlin! She is our website programmer and she works for reduced rates. Many thanks Anthony Watson from Blumenthal! He has translated the whole website into English, for no cost.

… and thank you to all the people in India and other parts of the world that have managed to preserve their culture and their love of nature despite pressure of competition, despite globalisation and despite other opposition!

… and thank you to everyone who is taking a stand for a better world!

… and thank you to everyone who has so faithfully donated to our association and our projects.

… and thank you to Mrs. Dr. Vandana Shiva who has been standing up for farmers for years and has been championing biodiversity. It is her we have to thank that there is still traditional seed in India.








Dr. Vandana Shiva explains that a farmer painted this mural on her wall out of gratitude and joy that traditional seed is still available.



Our thanks…
