Soch (the Urdu word for thought, or reflection) is a multilingual news community based in Pakistan. At Soch we believe that a free, vibrant, and courageous press is the most effective safeguard of democratic systems and values.
Through our reporting and analysis, Soch seeks to empower individuals, highlight local stories, promote social justice, and provide a southern-subaltern perspective on issues of global concern. As such, our reportage emphasizes citizen responsibility to organize and lobby governments to bring about positive change. And through the Soch Citizen Journalism App, we enable ordinary citizens to contribute their stories and share their experiences with a global audience.
