At Food 4 Thought Foundation, we believe that the strength of our long-lasting culture is its ethos. The values and belief systems that have been passed down the generations through folklore and stories told to us by our grandparents are now losing their space in our lives as we move into the age of nuclear families and fast-paced lifestyles. These stories are facing extinction and getting lost in the maze of unwarranted data and information and digital distractions. 

Project “Save endangered Stories” focuses on recording and saving these endangered stories and folklore narrated by our grandparents. These recorded stories will also be digitized later and be available for wider circulation and reference through e-library so that the legacy of these stories passes on to the next generation.
