Aadiwasi Janjagruti is an initiative by Ulgulan for Social Change foundation working on creating social awareness and raising local issues of the tribals through mobile video films.[1] It allows tribal people to highlight their issues in Pawari and Bhili (also Marathi and Hindi) language by using citizen journalism. Initially started in Dhadgaon block in Nandurbar districts it now covers news and local issues of entire districts.[2]

History

Aadiwasi Janjagruti was initiated by Nitesh Bhardwaj, in August 2016 as a project during SBI Youth for India Fellowship programme.[3] Initially Nitesh started a college newspaper from Dhadgaon College.[4] But as newspaper has its own limitations, the team started this project.[5] In 2017 their Short film on "Swacch Bharat Mission" was selected by Nandurbar District Administration to raise awareness. Same year the project was awarded by Quality Council of India.[6][7]

How it works

Volunteers from different villages make short films, informative videos or news in local languages entirely on their mobile phones. Once produced the team with the help of their volunteer screen these videos in different village meeting on mobile projectors.[8] They also share these videos on different social media platforms.[9] During COVID-19 pandemic they are making videos on creating awareness and fact check in tribal languages.[10][11]
