My name is Tarushi and I'm building a storytelling platform to bring forward real-life stories, promote human rights & equality, hold meaningful conversations & amplify voices that need to be heard.

It's called 'Stories You Should Know.

What started as a podcast in March 2020 reaching out to people around the world to bring stories that inspire and motivate others has now grown into something more meaningful. With this platform, I'm trying to reach out to people who are trying to bring a change and make a difference in the world. I want to bring forward their stories so they can reach millions of people like me and to those who can help and support these causes.

I have been associated with social work since I was 17. I have been working with NGOs and doing volunteer work with various small-scale organizations. I studied Psychology and Criminology with a specialization in Human Rights. I, later on, worked in the ruler areas of Bihar with the kids focusing on their education and what changes can be brought in.
Last year I started a small podcast through which I reached out to people from around the world who are doing their bit to contribute to society. It started with phone calls and then zoom calls but now I want to reach out to people on the ground level in India and bring out more stories. My job cannot support this dream. With the market getting a hit just like others I also suffered a pay cut and had to move back home.

I make enough to support myself and my family for now but Stories You Should Know requires more than that. I need equipment to shoot, professionals to work on these projects, means to travel to various locations, and tools to promote these stories.

All this will require a substantial amount of funding. This is a small way to reach out to people who would like to contribute to this project in any which way possible. Hope this makes for something you would be interested in. You can check out podcast and video links here. 

The funds received will be utilized in the following ways- 
  • To pay the people we will work with who will put in their time and skills in bringing out these stories. 
  • To create more campaigns for people working towards bringing a change and help them get funds.
