At Internews, we know that when women’s voices are heard and when women produce the news, the information we all consume improves. We have worked for the past three decades to train tens of thousands of women leaders in the media and information sectors. From Pakistan to South Sudan, we have worked with local partners to develop programs that cover under-reported topics and bring women and girls into conversations about the environment, politics, and the economy. These programs, and the women who lead them, are changing local attitudes, impacting policies, and inspiring women and girls around the world to raise their voices and make a difference.
All over the globe, Internews implements projects that empower youth, including Code for Change Hackathons; National Geographic photo camps; and training youth to use media for social change and participation in civil society.
