UNESCO award for Hindi newspaper

United Nations: Non-government organisation Nirantar, which runs Khabar Lahariya, a fortnightly newspaper in Hindi in Uttar Pradesh, has bagged the prestigious UNESCO King Sejong Literacy Prize 2009.

Established in 1989 with support from the government of South Korea, the annual award has also gone to Tin Tua’s Literacy and Non-Formal Education Programme in eastern Burkina Faso, UNESCO said in a statement.

The awards would be presented at the UNESCO headquarters in Paris.

The paper is entirely produced and marketed by Dalit women.

Launched in May 2002, it now has a readership of over 25,000 in more than 400 villages in the Chitrakoot and Banda districts of Uttar Pradesh, UNESCO said. — PTI
