INDIA UNHEARD: VIDEO VOLUNTEERS’ COMMUNITY NEWS SERVICE
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.
