Video Volunteers

Nonprofit Organization /Community Media
Role: Web Producer & Community Media Facilitator | Training & Facilitation | 2008-2010

Video Volunteers is an international media organization empowering the voices of India’s unheard communities. Providing communities with the journalistic and creative skills they need, the goal is to set-up locally-owned and managed media production houses where people can articulate and share their perspectives on the issues that matter to them.

Ruchika was involved in launching the online platform as well as train communities on live-news reporting by shooting, editing and uploading videos straight onto the youtube channel. Over the course of almost two years, she also facilitated media workshops and video production for youtube workshops with citizen journalists in underprivileged areas.
