A POSITIVE APPROACH

TEAM NAVI UMED
Team ‘Navi Umed’ comprises of:
Young women and men representatives from 22 districts of Maharashtra
5 from Mumbai
One Editor cum Coordinator
Human interest stories from the districts in form of text / photo features / videos are sent for publication. No story is published without cross verification: authenticity is important. The representatives are local journalists who know the district, geographically, culturally and socially. They look for socially relevant initiatives in their areas and collect information through visits and interviews. They send their stories in form of text, photos or videos to the Editor who trims them to size. She also verifies and supplements these stories if need be. They are then scheduled for publication on the page.
One or two fresh stories are published every day on the page. The issues such as child education, girl child, menstrual hygiene, parenting, farming, drinking water and sanitation, drought etc are covered.
