The Sarojini Naidu Prize for Best Reporting on Women and Panchayati Raj
The press plays a critical role in India. Throughout the twentieth century, India's media have participated in the Freedom Movement, generated response to famine and disaster, and strengthened Indian democracy.
Five-Year Cycle of Empowering Women's Leadership

In India, these come together in our Panchayati Raj Campaign.
