Brown Gyal Diary: Preserving Culture Campaign


The Brown Gyal Diary is raising funds for our first annual fundraiser, the Preserving Culture Campaign, which focuses on developing start-up funds for various projects that aim to build a strong foundation throughout the Indo-Caribbean community.


Over the last year, we spent our time developing a strong digital community sharing tools, resources, tips, and events related to the various identities within the Indo-Caribbean community. We dedicated our energy to nourishing relationships and understanding what our community needed.


Our team sat down to develop various projects that have a prime focus on preserving culture as well as our 3 leading principles; productive, personal, and professional growth.


Take a look at the details of our projects launching in 2021 here.
