Project Gallery

We have funded over 350 documentation projects worldwide since 2002. Our grantees come from all over the world and some are speakers of endangered languages themselves. Some projects are community driven, speaker communities documenting their language and their traditions themselves with the help of a linguist. Other projects work closely with speakers and communities and this collaboration puts the language into a new focus.This reveals to speakers the importance and immense value of the language and of the skill of knowing and speaking it locally. The attention given to the minority language through a documentation project leads to the valorisation of languages which are in dramatic decline. In some cases, speakers and communities use the project as a starting point for developing teaching materials and teaching the language to the younger generation, thus helping to maintain the language.
