About the Organization:-
Guhaar is an organization run by highly passionate individuals who believe in responsible journalism. They use media as a tool to highlight the voices of the marginalized and grass root movements/organizations through documentaries, movies and write-ups. Set up in Delhi in June 2017, it provides media consultancy to organizations spread across Bihar, Orissa, Maharashtra, Kerala, Madhya Pradesh and Delhi.
The founding team worked with Narmada Bachao Andolan and National Alliance of People’s Movements during their Smile Journeys with Pravah. It helped them understand the intensity of issues on the ground. They found that Media is diverting from its core value and building up a biased perspective among the people.
In order to minimize the gap between the urban and rural and highlight the voices of marginalized sections of the society, they worked to build a platform through their initiative.
Objectives of the Organization:-
- Creating a platform to give voices to grassroots moments and NGOs ( stories and challenges)
- Building the capacity of these organisation to enter the mainstream media spaces
- Creating a youth network a cohort of volunteers to as advocators to manage these two objectives and do that through self to society journeys.
