Chai Khana is a multi award-winning regional media platform reaching women, rural communities, minority groups, and conflict-affected communities in the Caucasus. Lead by women, the issue-driven multimedia platform aims to give voice to the under-represented across the region, amplifying their voices through dynamic human-focused storytelling, while providing mentorship to young journalists. 

Chai Khana publishes a new edition every other month on a unique issue or topic - from migration to minorities in the Caucasus, using creative and experimental approaches in documentary photography, multimedia, and film. The name Chai Khana, or tea house, represents a symbolic, collective space where people come together to exchange stories, ideas, and experiences. The platform elevates this space to a new level, talking to people in the whole South Caucasus, beyond its many borders. Chai Khana develops the skills of talented, young journalists through a unique mentorship programme, investing in the next generation of media professionals.
