Adivasi Lives Matter is a platform that works towards amplifying Adivasi and Tribal voices of India. The initiative was started in 2016 jointly by Ashish Birulee, Ankush Vengurlekar and Isha Chitnis with a vision to enable Adivasi/Tribal youth and individuals in creating & sharing digital stories about Adivasi culture, language, tradition and social issues.
Adivasi Awaaz' became the platform for training individuals from Adivasi/Tribal backgrounds and the first formal session of Adivasi Awaaz was conducted in 2019.
ALM is one of the first platforms to bring Adivasi/Tribal voices from the grassroots to the forefront, through digital content. In the last three of years, ALM has trained 180+ Adivasi and Tribal individuals in creating digital content about their way of life, culture and tradition. These individuals have contributed 800+ articles and videos surrounding Adivasi/Tribal culture and tradition to ALM.
How Do We Work?
We envision to become a resource center for Adivasi storytellers, entrepreneurs and professionals so that we can channelise their talent and energy in making Adivasi voices heard.
