Global Activism: Pukar Collective in India supports youth in urban slums

Pukar is an independent research collective and an urban knowledge production center based in Mumbai, India. Pukar means to “call out” in Hindi. Worldview visited the collective when it took the global activism series on the road to India. One of their projects is known as the barefoot researcher project. Young people from disadvantaged communities take on research projects and document what is happening with things like water quality or tuberculosis in their community. Then, they use that knowledge to generate change. Worldview spoke with the Executive Director of Pukar, Dr. Anita Deshmuk and took a tour of the slum area where some of the young people grew up.
