Chinhari published its first newsletter in November, 2019. Our newsletter marks a difference and publishes material written by young women from rural Chhattisgarh. This newsletter is thus, a platform of self-expression - of abhivyakti -- and a space for young women who are adivasi, dalit or belong to other backward castes to speak to the outside world. We help them both embrace and question the world they live in. We shall publish a newsletter quarterly and you can subscribe to our newsletter for free. Find the links to our newsletters below:
