The Wire went live on May 11, 2015 with no money but tonnes of goodwill. Two years on, we have raised some money but are counting on that goodwill to help go to the next level.
In a world of commercialised media and declining editorial standards, The Wire was launched in the belief that a not-for-profit model would be the best guarantee of of our editorial independence.
Two years on, we publish in both English and Hindi, and are looking to expand into other Indian languages. We are constantly increasing the resources devoted to news gathering and reportage. And are looking to expand our multimedia output too. All of this requires the financial support of readers and well-wishers.
