About The Indian Subcontinent Partition Documentation Project - ISPaD
In Bengal, as in the Indian subcontinent, there is a taboo in discussing the plight of minorities, and to search the whereabouts of the missing population of minorities. The Indian Subcontinent Partition Documentation (ISPaD) Project, Inc. attempts to break that taboo and tries to estimate the status of minorities in Bangladesh — the East Bengal of the erstwhile Bengal Province of British-ruled India, and answer an often-asked question: WHERE DID/DO MY PEOPLE GO? In conjunction with The ISPaD Project's multiple social media accounts, it is the creation & maintenance of the homepage and FaceBook Page&Group are fundamental to sharing The ISPaD Projects efforts, including subsequent Projects - with five foci - have "grown" out of what would seem to be a simple query when asking WHERE DID/DO MY PEOPLE GO?: 1. Documentation of the history of Indian Partition. 2. Documentation of the present-day effects of Indian Partition. 3. Interviews of "refugees", "survivors", and "protectors" from the time of Partition to build a collection of oral history narratives have been uploaded and are being kept for public viewing on the Interviews Playlist on the ispad1947 YouTube Channel along with other Playlists, easily labeled, for the simplification and facilitating logical placement (for both viewers and creators) of all videos created, uploaded, and/or from another source ( 4. An Annual Partition Studies Conference hosted by The ISPaD Project had been graciously given a venue at/by SUNY Old Westbury on a beautiful college campus with fully functional academic resources. Upon completion of renovations to The ISPaD Project's office building, we have already begun to and plan to continue holding the Annual Partition Studies Conference within the NYC office, the Conference has been continuing on annually with the truly impressive growth and expansion of ISPaD. Even during the global Covid-19 pandemic, the Annual Conference has still been held as interactive webinars with just a few seats available for the Partition Studies Conference within the head office in NYC with some of the staff and one or two individuals from The Board of Directors. The office space was redesigned so as to make it easier for us to hold conferences, events, & meetings within The ISPaD Project's own NYC main office-thus we need not pursue permission for usage of space for all/any events we organize. Also, ISPaD's main office is in an area that is easily accessible via mass transit or one can drive to the area & look for an open spot to park on the roads if the entire driveway (with room for multiple cars) is full. The architectural and planning accolades I adorn our office building with, have been seen by many other organizations looking for a location to hold events. Assisting such organizations has been a means to raise funds by renting out common space, this common space has been rented out and also increased the number & variety of events The ISPaD Project now hosts - all of the aforementioned events held in our building all raised knowledge (perhaps even interest &/or funding) about The ISPaD Project's endeavors. 5. We're still amid the 2022-23 holiday season, with 2023 just beginning quite recently. An especially pivotal time for ~small nonprofits, like the NGO this Post is being written by. This NGO resulted from the recent merger of The Indian Subcontinent Partition Documentation Project (ISPaD) and The Probini Foundation. ISPaD and Probini were "consolidated" in order to minimize redundant paperwork for two small NGOs (founded by the same couple and maintained/supported by similar individuals & organizations) as well as to maximize the impact of, any financial and all possible, support by combining support to be for one independent nonprofit, instead of two. All being said, this means one thing: FUNDRAISING IS UPON US FOR TWO NGOS PAST YEAR-END. As nonprofits navigate away from the pandemic, 2022 has brought the return of in-person fundraisers, stewardship events, and donor meetings. The traditional ways of fundraising started to pop up again and nonprofits were able to make stronger, longer-lasting connections with their stakeholders. "Just because 2022 has nearly come to a close, that doesn’t mean we can put our feet up and relax." Even if not entitled fundraising campaign, this time of year is critical as up to 50% of annual charitable giving comes in a combination of year-end and year-beginning.
