Help Expand Socialist India: Contribute widely to the first round of fund raising campaign
Socialist India, which started off as a blog 7 months ago, became a portal about 2 months ago. In spite of running entirely on the efforts of few individuals it has been able to create a space for itself. As we had remarked at the beginning of our journey: “If you want to know everything about the Indian Left then you are at the right place. From struggles, movements, agitations to the snippets of history and the views, opinions and debates within the left- this is the place where you will find it all.”
We are now gearing ourselves for a major expansion wherein the portal will be run in a full-fledged manner. This expansion shall mean:
- Developing a network of stringers in various places who will provide on-ground reports- both textual and audio-visual.
- Providing reports in both English and Hindi.
- Developing a dedicated team for creating video materials.
- Beginning a specific section with short materials that can be effectively used for WhatsApp propaganda.
All of this would require financial resources, even though the portal has been run and will be continued to run on strictly not-for-profit basis. In the first round of fund raising we are seeking to reach out to our current existing readership base. In the second round we will be using a wider crowd funding platform.
We appeal all of you to contribute generously to this fund raising drive. The donations can be made through online transfers to the following account.
