Punjab Lok Sujag is a group of people committed to working towards a society that ensures equitable access to livelihood resources for all and respects their rights irrespective of race, faith and gender.
Sujag believes that this could be achieved through organized conscious efforts and by institutionalizing these efforts. Sujag is of the firm opinion that the change can come only through the voluntary involvement of communities in designing and implementing social, political and economic interventions in the existing system.
Sujag is working with a number of small farmer communities and working on an equitable model for marketing of agriculture produce.
Sujag is also leading a public health initiative in an area with extreme iodine deficiency located in Depalpur and Pakpattan.
It has adopted very innovative communication strategy using theater and puppets. Making modern technologies work for the under privileged and the marginalized is another aim that Sujag is actively pursuing.
It has developed a full text database of local English dailies with a focus on social sector as an on going effort.
Sujag is involved in development of an IT tool to transliterate the two scripts used to write Punjabi language Gurmukhi and Shahmukhi. Historically, Sujag is a spin-off of an alternative theater group Punjab Lok Rahs. The group is Sujag's main partner in organizing Punjab Lok Boli Mela.
Each year Sujag celebrates the People Language Festival.
