About Community Youth Hub

This project seeks to address the absence of knowledge and understanding of freedom of speech of economically backward communities, the existing ecosystem of disinformation and yellow journalism that makes people on the fringe of society to be unaware of their rights. Between April–December 2019, The National Human Rights Commission of India (NHRCI) formulated a Report titled ‘Locating National Human Rights Commission Within The Human Rights Discourse At The Grassroots In Rural India.’ The study concluded that people at the grassroots level lack awareness about human rights, including the fundamental rights elucidated in The Indian Constitution.


Given this prevailing situation, the need of the hour is to ensure a sustainable system is created and executed which makes the marginalized people to firstly understand what they do not know and to then empower them so that they can present their side of the story in front of mainstream society and bargain as equal community stakeholders. After thorough planning since the beginning of 2023, we have formulated a feasible plan in accordance with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (U.N. SDGs) of SDG-10: Reduced Inequalities, SDG-11: Sustainable Cities & Communities and SDG-16: Peace, Justice, and Strong Institutions.


The plan is to form a Community Youth Hub at the grassroots level whereby the content creators will be from the marginalized communities who will voice their rights and uphold democracy. The HUB will act as the central headquarters of the teams in Kolkata, West Bengal, India and Arunachal Pradesh, India. The teams will be virtually connected with each other. There will be a series of awareness workshops with the community youth & adults on their democratic and legal rights, activity-based capacity building workshops on freedom of speech & disinformation and how to utilize technology relevant to digital media so that we can expand our outreach to a greater portion of society.

The Community Youth Hub will be engaged in creating informative visual content namely videos, reels and maintaining web pages on prominent social media sites like - Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and YouTube - all of which shall cover different aspects of freedom of speech & human rights as well as tackle misinformation & fake news.

The goal of this project is to see marginalized people become the spokesperson for their problems and other complex situations. The HUB will be a means to an end whereby they can help to bring about positive social impact to fringe communities. These efforts will go a long way towards creating an egalitarian society.
