Categories: South Asia, India, Development, Education, Good News

Video Volunteers Community Correspondent Amit Topno from Torpa Block, Jharkhand [1] talks about making a video that brought about a positive change that had potentially saved the lives of 5000 people across 35 villages in his state. When his video explaining the problem of lightning strikes and the inaction of the authorities was screened to villagers, journalists and local government officials, the rest was easy. They pressurized to secure permissions to install lightning conductors in 50 schools across Torpa Block.
