Identifying the Unidentified
Kolpor Golpo is an internet media company devoted to ‘identifying the unidentified’- to bring forth attention to individuals who have never seen the limelight but are using their original ideas and initiatives, to bring about a change in their respective fields, and to help them form an identity.
With the help of micro-documentaries, podcasts, articles, and other forms of media, we want to reach out to the diverse population that makes up this country, and let them know that Assam has more to offer than the majestic one-horned rhino, world-renowned tea gardens, a culturally rich river island, or even the fact that it has a lush green ecosystem where a variety of flora and fauna have been residing since the last few centuries.
Assam is now a thriving platform for sustainability and creativity. With the focus on an ever growing industrial outbreak and the influence of a mixed culture in the melting pot of the North Eastern region of India, we are now focusing on our roots and how we have individuals amongst us who are using ingenious methods and initiatives to try and make a small yet significant difference in their fields, not for themselves but for the sake of our youth and the region.
Our Latest release
A story worth knowing, and getting inspired from!
From the lanes of the one-horned rhino, hails an ambitious woman who did not confine the idea of ‘Reduce, Reuse & Recycle’ just to the Environmental Science books in school; meet Rupjyoti Saikia Gogoi: a visionary.
Gogoi, a former teacher in Kaziranga, took matters – and plastics – to her own hands. With a sense of empowering the women in her society by providing them a refuge to literally weave their living – Gogoi founded the ‘The Village Weaves’ organization, that caters lifestyle products to people in the most sustainable way possible, through their NEDFi supported sale outlet called ‘Kaziranga Haat’.
From weaving warp cotton to weft polythene in clothes with having absolutely zero capitals to providing empowerment of the women of the entire village of Bochagaon in Kaziranga, this group of self-sustaining ladies has marked their flair in many corners of the country, and beyond. Their ‘Village Weaves’ initiative does not just serve the cause of uplifting the local women of the region but also conserving the natural wildlife of Kaziranga, for plastics don’t opt to harm just humans but all.
This is the story of The Village Weaves.
