About ALM

Adivasi Lives Matter is a platform that works towards amplifying the 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 years, ALM has trained 200+ Adivasi and Tribal individuals in creating digital content about their way of life, culture, and tradition. These individuals have contributed 500+ articles and videos surrounding Adivasi/Tribal culture and tradition to ALM.
