JORHAT, Nov 29: The Assam Women’s University in Jorhat has expressed its interest in collaborating with PAJHRA, a Tezpur-based non-profit organisation, to establish a linkage with Adivasi communities at the grassroots for community development. PAJHRA, standing for Promotion and Advancement of Justice, Harmony, and Rights of Adivasis, and the Assam Women’s University aim to undertake various activities for the development of Adivasis based on community feedback.

Professor Ajanta Borgohain Rajkonwar, VC of Assam Women’s University, inaugurated a two-day training on media for community leaders from Golaghat and Karbi Anglong districts at Bosco Institute, Bagchung, on November 27.

During the inaugural speech, the Vice Chancellor suggested the creation of a data bank of the Adivasi community by the Department of Mass Communication and Journalism and proposed exploring research possibilities. She encouraged postgraduate students to visit villages, experience rural life, and produce dissertations based on their observations.

The two-day training, organised by PAJHRA with technical support from the Department of Mass Communication and Journalism, aimed to introduce community leaders to the media realm, especially social media, fostering critical consciousness and responsible use for community development. The training covered topics such as Understanding the Media Landscape, Social Media and Community Engagement, Building Digital Skills, Leveraging Media for Advocacy, Radio as a Medium of Community Development, Advanced Social Media Strategies, Media Ethics and Responsible Communication, and Hands-on Training in Media Message Production.
