Chambal Media is a digital media social enterprise founded in 2015 by a diverse team of rural and urban media practitioners, with over 20 years of experience producing local language content especially with and for rural audiences.

Diversity is our neev, our foundation. It was founded with the mission to bring into the digital/internet revolution in India the perspectives and involvement of women on the margins

Our Flagship: Khabar Lahariya

The country’s only women-run brand of ethical and independent rural news.

Khabar Lahariya reaches up to 10 million people a month through multiple digital platforms. We have a network of women reporters and stringers in Uttar Pradesh and Madhya Pradesh.

Our New Vertical - Chambal Academy

Chambal Academy is powered by Chambal Media and is an online learning platform tailored specifically with India’s small town and rural audience in mind. The courses, trainings and toolkits available on Chambal Academy are designed with the idea of enabling rural audiences, especially women and girls off the connectivity grid, into Digital Bharat - as producers, consumers and an empowered workforce.

Partnerships and Projects

Chambal Media is proud to be associated with several national and international foundations and organizations that believe in an investment in the feminist future of media. Our work here is across the spectrum of research, training, content production, syndication and curation, as we move towards building the vision of an alternate, grassroots, inclusive, feminist media model  and business.
