IU Impact: Citizen Journalist Revives Education in Rural India

This is a great piece done by a young citizen journalist in the rural India village of Jharkhand. The village school had been shut done due to the negligence of the hired teacher. Mukesh Rajak, a Community Correspondent, used his own camera and showed the public the horrible conditions for the students and staff. This is a great example of citizen journalism being used the right way. When traditional media can’t/won’t help…activists can gain support from the public using social media tools.

As a result of Rajak’s work, the school was reopened.
