BETTER DAYS

We have reached a crucial point of man's development on earth, where 1% of the population holds 50% of the GDP of the entire planet. Wealth is concentrated in the hands of a few and there is widespread poverty & increasing inequality.

In spite of this, there are those who are a part of the 99%, who are driving positive change for themselves, their communities and the society at large! We are on a mission to document the work of these unsung heroes of India.

We have come together with the Brazilian duo Lara & Patrick from Bem Te Vi Producoes, India's largest news channel Times Now & Facebook India to showcase 12 such inspiring stories!
