Atma Tools for Digital Literacy, Citizen
Journalism, Misinformation

Atma has been a force for digital literacy, citizen journalism and amplifying unheard voices in three ways.

First, Atma trained 1000s of people through in-person and virtual digital literacy and citizen journalism training sessions, with a focus on women and youth — in urban areas and remote villages, to older people as well as young people. Second, Atma has also trained people in recognizing digital misinformation. Third, Atma’s peer-driven communication network, AtmaGo, is designed to be easy to learn and use, thereby encouraging even digital newcomers to participate online with confidence.

Trainings and Events

In Person and Virtual Programs
We’ve pioneered curriculum and engagement strategies that bring new people and perspectives to share their needs and solutions online and create change offline. We’ve conducted hundreds of trainings on Digital Literacy and Citizen Journalism, and reached over 5,000 people, including 2,500 women and more than 1,500 youth.
We support people to create real change on the ground through contests and gamification to find, recognize and support the efforts of people working to improve their communities, from home-based hydroponics and neighborhood clean-ups to mangrove planting.
