Oorvani Foundation

Oorvani Foundation is a public-funded, non-partisan, non-profit organization that funds hardcore data and analytical journalism. It started off as the Citizenmatters.in website in 2008, followed by Oorvani Media Pte. Ltd. and finally Oorvani Foundation was established, in order to separate its journalism from the funding. The foundation, which has a stable presence in Chennai and Bangalore, has supported the creation of many data-driven investigative stories and also started a ‘Co-Media Lab’ initiative to improve quality of citizen and professional journalism through collaborative projects and offering journalism internships and workshops.
