Successful information and media solutions must be rooted in local culture, values and capacities. In all corners of the world, Internews works with local partners to develop and implement programs that make a positive impact.
We are agile
One of Internews’ greatest strengths is our ability to work where freedom of expression is most threatened and where information is most urgently needed. From remote rural regions to communities devastated by earthquakes and tsunamis to some of the most heavily censored countries in the world, our agility is our strength.
We tackle the most pressing issues
We bring information solutions to the world’s most pressing issues. As the world increasingly confronts acute crises and complex, long-term development and humanitarian challenges, a common denominator remains: Accurate, evidence-based information empowers people to have a voice in the decisions that affect them. This is true across issues related to the environment, public health epidemics, and natural and man-made disasters.
We design and implement our programs through deep engagement with local communities. All our work starts with listening to the communities we are trying to serve and designing projects that respond directly to their expressed needs and preferred delivery mechanisms.
We build lasting partnerships
Internews builds long-term partnerships that strengthen and promote local organizations. Our local partners lead and maintain ownership of the work we do together. Our alliances deliver results. In 2021, we launched the Internews Fellows program to deepen our support to partners.
