Government Ignores Preschoolers
Under the Anganwadi system in India, it was legislated that even pre-school children have a right to schooling. In Karnataka preschoolers find themselves attending “school” in any space the teacher might find. Often they are located in one child’s yard, or the patio of a larger house.
IndiaUnheard is the first ever community news service launched by Video Volunteers. This new initiative is constituted of a network of community correspondents who are trained to tell unique stories; stories about their own communities; stories which are otherwise left untold. By feeding this community-produced content to national and international outlets, such as mainstream television channels and social networking sites, IndiaUnheard links rural communities with a truly global audience. Through bridging these worlds, IndiaUnheard empowers communities to create real change on real issues affecting their lives.
