‘Maatram’ | Citizen journalism in Tamil

After several months of planning and development, Groundviews is extremely pleased to announce the launch of Maatram - a new citizen journalism and civic media initiative from the Centre for Policy Alternatives

Featuring compelling articles and exclusive multimedia content, Maatram, which is also on Twitter and Facebook, is aimed at Tamil readers across Sri Lanka and in the diaspora.

In addition to original reporting and content generation in Tamil, Maatram will also feature translations of material sourced from
Groundviews and Vikalpa to ensure a wider readership and deeper appreciation of issues mainstream media in Sri Lanka will not or cannot publish, produce or promote. 

Please read and engage with the content on Maatram and help spread the word by liking its Facebook page or subscribing to its Twitter feed.
