Ashoka Fellow
Fellow Since 2003
This description of Khatau Jani's work was prepared when Khatau Jani was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2003.
As a volunteer correspondent for a provincial newspaper, Khatau Jani has established a drought-monitoring and relief system that joins responsible, on-the-ground reporting with efforts to push ahead with citizen action that will in turn result in increased attention to drought-stricken areas. Having already brought some relief to over two million desert people, Khatau is extending his methods to journalists and citizen sector organizations.
