Via News Didi's Student Internship Program

For budding journalists!

Applications close on 13th November 2022.

The Problem

Children are consuming news and information that is

false, misleading and often harmful to their mental health

- all without the skills to recognize and solve these problems.

With unreliable information

about their ever-changing environment and

without critical and independent thinking skills-

students are unlikely to become active citizens and informed decision makers.

OuR Solution

Our solution is to empower students with

(a) media literacy skills

  to critically analyse information, identify false information and become responsible consumers and creators of media!



(b) solutions-journalism skills + resources 

 to consume and create news stories that focus on solutions, inspiring ideas and people fixing problems!

From our readers 

"As a teacher, it's difficult to complete the syllabus and keep my students updated about current affairs. Plus, current affairs are never presented in a language accessible to children. This newsletter definitely makes my work a lot easier.

The layout is amazing to design a lesson plan out of!"

- Mridula, Teach for India fellow


Why solutions journalism?

People are avoiding the news because it negatively affects their mood or because they don't know what to do with the information.

Solutions journalism addresses this problem by taking an in-depth look at a response to a problem- it's effectiveness and limitations!
