IM­PACT

Tehelka - - 20 - NGO

PER­HAPS THE GREAT­EST mo­ti­va­tor for the correspondents is the tan­gi­ble im­pact they have on the lives of their community. View­ers also reach out with so­lu­tions. “A cor­re­spon­dent from Ma­nipur made a video about lack of med­i­cal fa­cil­i­ties. A Ma­nipuri viewer liv­ing in Ben­galuru saw the film and wanted to help. We con­nected him with our cor­re­spon­dent, Daniel. The viewer then in­tro­duced Daniel to a lo­cal and to­gether, they or­gan­ised the dis­tri­bu­tion of medicines,” says Stalin. Video Vol­un­teers is cur­rently forg­ing part­ner­ships with non­prof­its to try and lever­age this in­cred­i­ble con­tent on a wider scale. Cur­rently, TE­HELKA and CNN-IBN share re­ports from In­di­aUn­heard’s community correspondents.
