Community Correspondents



Alam is a VV-PACS Correspondent from Nalanda district, Bihar. He feels that media plays an important role in development and that the mainstream media often sidelines the needs of marginalized communities. He has seen a lot of discrimination in his village, and therefore wants work on those issues as a video campaigner, amplifying the voices of his own people.
