Eighteen-year-old Mukesh has made extensive coverage on issues in his community for India Unheard (Video Volunteers), which span from agriculture to corruption in Jharkhand’s education system.
In Jharkhand mining has played a large role in the change of weather conditions. That crops fail every year is not the only problem. Farmers have been forced to leave their homes to look for sources of income in cities.
This video is part of a project by Video Volunteers and the Indian Network for Ethics and Climate Change to document the effects of climate change on local communities across 14 states in India. These communities tell our CCs how changing weather patterns affects their livelihoods and that little has been done to help them cope.
