Johar!
You can help revolutionize Adivasi participation in the digital sphere Today!

Why Donate?

Adivasis constitute a population of 104 million and speak more than 500 languages. They are instrumental in the upkeep of our environment and our social fabric. Yet, their stories, aspirations, and opinions do not find adequate representation either in policy-making, or even everyday conversations. 

 

Adivasi Lives Matter was established with the goal to bridge this divide and amplifying the voices of this marginalized group. We train Adivasis in the art of digital storytelling and consistently create platforms where these stories can be published. We also compensate the Adivasi creators for their contributions.

 

Now, we need your support to keep our operations running and ensure more Adivasi representation on all digital platforms.

Our Goal

We envision to become a resource center of Adivasi storytellers, entrepreneurs, and professionals so that we can channelize their talent and energy in making Adivasi voices heard. 

What we do:  

  • ALM trains young Adivasis in the art of digital storytelling, complete with the capacities required for writing, photography, and videography.  

  • We then receive the content created by these youth and publish them on all our platforms- website, YouTube, and social media.  

  • We pay for every content that meets our editorial standards. To know more about our journey.
