MAY­BERRY WAS A tele­vi­sion pro­fes­sional in New York, with stints at CNN and Fox News be­hind her; Stalin is an award-win­ning ac­tivist and film­maker based in Goa, known for his pi­o­neer­ing community me­dia work. When May­berry moved to In­dia to see if news could be done dif­fer­ently and used to em­power peo­ple, she and Stalin started to work to­gether on in­di­vid­ual projects. It was in 2006, though, that the idea for a new model of community me­dia struck them and they founded Video Vol­un­teers,

to­day one of the largest community me­dia ini­tia­tives

in the world.
