YKA Wins Manthan Awards, South Asia’s Highest Honour In ICT For Development

Posted on December 8, 2013 in Youth Ki Awaaz news

The evening before yesterday was extremely exciting for all of us at Youth Ki Awaaz. We were nominated for the prestigious Manthan Awards, South Asia’s highest honour in Information and Communication Technology for Development in two categories – ‘News and Journalism’ and ‘Social Media and Empowerment’.

And we won in both categories.

Manthan Awards had over 400 nominations this year, and Youth Ki Awaaz’s work was widely appreciated throughout.

Thank you each and every one who has helped us build a fearless platform, take up hard hitting issues that the traditional media has ignored for long and drive youth opinions around them. Cheers to the most amazing and passionate team that never fails to stay strong.

Most of all, all those who have ever written on YKA and broken every stereotype, gone against the status-quo. This award is for you!
