YourStory.in launched SocialStory about 4 months ago to write about social and green ventures and the response we have received has been very heartening. The intention behind creating a micro site was not to differentiate social entrepreneurs (ventures which have a strong social angle) from the mainstream, but instead to create a separate platform for them so that their stories are heard and they eventually merge with the mainstream.There are some phenomenal ventures in India that are solving local problems and their stories need to be heard. William Sloan and Sarah Bass from the US came to India with the desire to set up a lasting platform that will do its bit in spreading the word and inspiring more people to start up social ventures. They joined hands with YourStory to manage SocialStory and have done a fabulous job.
Now, to take this journey ahead and spread the word to a larger audience, SocialStory is partnering with RuralCall who will be translating the stories in Hindi and running them on their portal. Ramkrishna Someriya, the founder of RuralCall said, “We’re really glad to partner with SocialStory and collaborate for this cause. This partnership will help us build and take RuralCall to a wide audience.”
Shradha Sharma, the founder of YourStory said, “It’s a proud moment for YourStory to be a part of this and the intention of RuralCall fits in perfectly with our vision of supporting and fostering the entrepreneurial ecosystem across sectors.” SocialStory will continue to churn out stories on its own but this partnership will enable YourStory to tap a different segment altogether. RuralCall will be running all of SocialStory’s articles in Hindi along with its own content.
