Pilgrim Relief Society: The San Story (26 min)

This video about the Pilgrim Relief Society's development project shows the struggle that the San (or Bushmen) of the Kalahari Desert are facing today. As circumstances beyond their control press for change, the San leave behind that which makes them unique: elements of their culture and lifestyle which they have practised and preserved for millennia.

The Pilgrim Relief Society is a non-profit, charitable organization dedicated to improving the quality of life of indigenous people in remote places around the world. Since its establishment in 2001, the organization has developed projects for various remote communities including the Ju!hoansi Bushmen of the Kalahari, the Bambute pygmies and Lugbara tribe of Central Africa, the Kiai tribe of Vanuatu, the Inuit community of the north pole and the Inca community of South America.
