We are young South Asians from different fields of journalism, policy research, youth action, data science, and prevention of violent extremism. We are a volunteer collective committed to scrolling the hate away!

We lost Roshini Kumari, one of our co-founders in August, 2022. She believed in an inclusive world beyond hate. As we mourn, we appreciate everyone who supported us through our grief. Her values and aspirations would always guide our endeavors at DID.

The research award from UNESCO and the Liiv Center enables our digital anthropological interventions against online gender discrimination in South Asia.
