For over 20 years, Chambal Media has worked with rural communities to produce media in local languages. Its focus is on marginalized voices, particularly those of women and migrant workers. Through workshops and other events, Chambal Media support a range of content from short and long videos to photo series, podcasts, and graphic novellas.
Launched in Bundelkhand in 2002 as a media literacy program, Khabar Lahariya is presently the only women-run, ethical and independent rural news outlet in India. It reaches five million people every month with outreach in different communities in Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh, and Bihar. It also launched KL Hatke in 2019 offering subscription content to a growing national and international English-speaking audience.
The Chambal Academy is an online learning platform for small town and rural audiences, offering courses, training, and toolkits. Its rural mobile journalism course instructs students on rural digital journalism from a feminist perspective, teaching them to recognize and understand gender, caste, and patriarchy in Indian society.
