Lok Foundation believes there is value in having a responsible news media, and a more democratic news selection process. To do this, Lok Foundation believes India needs a more decentralized model of news dissemination.

LF provides support to independent and responsible media in an effort to give visibility to untold stories and narratives otherwise not reflected in mainstream discourse. It has supported The Better India media platform which, at the forefront of solutions-based journalism in India, has focused on impact amongst local communities. From bringing light to a remote village in India to bringing water to one of the most drought-prone regions of the country, The Better India has focused on sustainable change by mobilising the power of storytelling and the large community it has organically built.
