Internews works with journalists to master the data journalism skills needed to measure and communicate the most urgent challenges facing their communities, the citizens most affected, the root causes and potential solutions to growing inequality.
Internews trains journalists in data journalism to 1) help address injustice, inequality, and discrimination amongst marginalized populations; 2) redefine journalism by investigating problems, identify who is suffering, and specifying how to make things better; and 3) to help make publicly available data more accessible and affordable.
