    This fundraiser will benefit

    Gauri media trust

    from Bengaluru, Karnataka

As you know Gauri media trust is publishing a print magazine and two websites, and Since we don't take Ads as of now, we are basically sustaining on subscribers, sale of magazine and books which are not possible now because of  blockdown.
But at the same time we can neither close down the initiative nor stop paying the staff. As you know the website has become more vibrant during these days. Its very much necessary to sustain it in this hour of crisis to publish the stories of all those who are suffering because of lockdown along with creating awareness around COVID-19.

In fact the number of readers of our website has increased threefold now and at this hour of crisis which is not just virus infection but humanitarian crisis involving the lives of ordinary people and the threat to democratic values, a real people's media is all the more essential.

How do we use this money?
This is basically to pay our staff, there are 8 full time staff and 14 part time contributors, along with paying internet bill and minimum office expenditure. Since our staff can't move out frequently and can't go home because of lockdown, we have started preparing food in the office itself. All  of this needs financial resources. (Overall projected cost if for two months.)

Hence we need your support to sustain the media initiative.
