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. Chambal Media was founded with the mission to bring into the digital/internet revolution in India the perspectives and involvement of women on the margins. Diversity is our neev, our foundation: besides producing media products, we train and mentor rural women as researchers and content creators in remote rural districts, most of whom become part of our revolutionary network of new media professionals for a new India.
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.
Diversity is in our DNA. Location, background, skills. Meet our all-women team!
