A Project was initiated in October 2019 to translate the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in all the indigenous languages spoken in the state of Manipur. The objective of this Project is to not only raise awareness about the Sustainable Development Goals but also explore the status of indigenous languages spoken in the state of Manipur.
The Year 2019 has been declared by the United Nations as the International Year of Indigenous Languages. The Sustainable Development Goals were defined in 2016 and need to be met by the year 2030. The aim of this project is to merge these two United Nations led initiatives and help raise awareness about the diversity of languages and dialects found in Manipur at the global level and to promote the SDGs at the state level.
