Gram Vaani Community Media
Gram Vaani [meaning 'voice of the village'] is a social tech company based at IIT-Delhi. Our objective is to reverse the flow of information, that is, to make it bottom-up instead of top-down, by helping connect communities with companies/governments/dev agencies. Using simple technologies and social context to design tools, we have been able to impact communities- more than 2 million users in over 15 Indian States, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Namibia and South Africa.

2. Business sustainability
We serve a variety of customers: - Citizens: We provide a voice platform for citizens to express themselves, talk about governance issues, and network with other citizens -Classifieds and local/national advertisers: Our network enables outreach into rural and semi-urban markets - Media agencies: The platform provides low-cost news and data collection from rural and semi-urban geographies
Our experience of working in the ICTs-for-development space for the last several years has taught us that technology alone is not sufficient to make societal impact, but needs to be implemented with appropriate processes. We therefore bring a combination of both technology and community processes best practice in a unique manner not offered by any other company.
