Project Heartland captures the struggle of people from marginalised communities mainly Dalits in Gujarat. It shows the courage and determination of Dalit women and men to assert for their rights despite all odds. By capturing these stories of struggle, Project Heartland wants these brave people to be known, recognised and be seen as inspiration to others.
In this YouTube mini series, we shall bring out different stories from the heartland of Gujarat which nobody tells.
We will release a new episode every fortnight. Subscribe to our channel for more updates.
