AkkarBakkar is here to do relevant journalism for people, by the people. And guess what? We have a plan. Our plan includes you. Here, on this platform, the press doesn’t represent you, it IS you.
We do realize that some stories don’t need a face or name, but they need an audience. And that’s exactly why you can choose to tell your story anonymously on AkkarBakkar, or not.
We will publish every single story or news or poem or opinion that we think is #relevant-journalism. For us, relevant journalism is what happens every day in the world rather than breaking news.
Melinda and Bill Gates read an article in the New York Times that led them to their decision of solving the poor sanitation problem in the world to save the 500,000 people who die every year worldwide because of it. Imagine, that’s all it takes. One powerful man with the right resources to read a relevant news story, on a subject that’s affecting people everyday, to make this world a better place to live in. Here on AkkarBakkar, we will tell stories that happen in your lives everyday because what color umbrella a celebrity carries to her gym is not news. Your story is.
Your life, your problems, your happiness, your secrets, your mental health - matter to us.
So go on, tell us !
Akkar Bakkar ..... What’s your story?
