About Media For Society

Hi Breese

Media For Society is network of filmmakers, photographers, designers in India who wish to work for development. We have often seen how NGOs grapple to get quality media outputs. Most of the service providers in the market are profit oriented. So any change maker who wants to get his/her story across has to either pay a hefty charge or settle with mediocre quality. Media For Society provides a better solution.

The second service that media for society wishes to provide is to create a pool of media professionals out of Kids living in shelter homes in India. There are millions of kids of live in shelter homes in India. As soon as they turn 18, they are asked to leave the shelter home and step outside. Such kids are highly vulnerable to crime, poverty and under employment. Some of them work as construction workers, others work as cleaners, in the sweatshops, or indulge in crime.

The idea is to allow these kids to have an ambition. Give them free of cost, job-oriented training so that they can do something better than breaking houses and washing dishes. We hope to provide media related training to 5 kids (to begin with) in Delhi for one year. Post one year, offer 2 kids a fellowship for 2 next years. Within this fellowship, the kids get on the job training as well as a small stipend.
