We are 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.
Chambal Media's mission is to bring the perspectives and involvement of women on the margins into the digital revolution in India.
With this vision, Chambal Media produces multimedia content on youth, gender, tech, culture, environment, climate change etc in different formats like short and long feature documentaries, animation, podcasts, photo features, academic digital videos, tool kits and live events on current issues for local, national, and international audiences.
We believe that understanding society from the perspective of those most marginalised can be empowering and transformative and is necessary for social change; and that hyperlocal content produced by communities is key to hold the largest democracies up to accountability. With this vision, we enable and produce multimedia content on youth, gender, tech, culture, development, short feature documentaries and live debates on current issues for local, national and international audiences. We are interested in having the media product travel to the last mile, where engaging, accurate, relevant news and information, local and global, is rarely seen or heard. In order to bridge online and offline, highly engaged audiences, we use closed social media networks, as well as open platforms such as Youtube, and open-air community events. We also plan and execute customised digital media campaigns nationally.
