Need funding for running an all girl's media house in India, in the conflicted state of Jammu and Kashmir. It is an independent journalistic venture run by a 20-year-old female journalist.
Coming from the conflicted state of Jammu & Kashmir where it is quite hard for journalists to stay independent and work with strength, I and my all-girls team have been making sure that we make our voices stand out. Within a short span of time, we have garnered huge support on Facebook and youtube as can be seen if you search for "The Straight Line" Facebook page or go to our youtube channel (youtube.com/thestraightline). You can also see our website (www.straightlinenews.com) as well
To battle with financial struggles while pledging to avoid commercialization and government funding, we have started an online crowdfunding campaign to ensure that women of Jammu and Kashmir (and of India) are also heard across the world.
Any contribution, no matter how small will go a long way in ensuring that the initiative we have taken as female journalists in a conflicted state, does not die down because of lack of funds.
