Digital Inclusion

This year, on 31st May, Khabar Lahariya turned 20, completing two decades of groundbreaking rural journalism, enabling feminist reporting by questioning structures of power and inequity, and  training rural women as journalists, researchers and content creators to bring into the digital revolution in India the perspectives and involvement of women on the margins.
