A £20,000 a year commitment over three years to a core issue in which Internews supports journalists.
With your support we can provide grants to journalists in over 100 countries around the world in many different languages to provide millions of people with accurate information on some of the biggest issues of our time and ignite conversation:
Our Earth Journalism Network helps journalists from low-income countries to cover the environment more effectively and in the face of growing threats. We connect local reporters to the international community, offer workshops and training materials, fellowship programs and small reporting grants, and support news production.
Public health reporting harnesses all the tools of journalism to help people make healthy choices about thorny cultural issues and long-term health concerns that are an ongoing threat to development. We provide support on reporting of epidemics and pandemics like COVID 19, during natural disasters and in conflict settings.
Our unique in-house Global Tech Hub provides partners with vital access to software and resources to ensure the security of their technology and protect the information provided to their communities. We also provide training to address mis- and disinformation and offer digital safety training, including a specialised programme for women.
£10,000 per year to support us in providing trustworthy information around the world by training journalists.
Your support as a trust partner will help us train journalists to cover a wide variety of issues, develop innovative online news sites and support local content including ground-breaking investigative reports.
From radio stations in refugee camps, to hyper-local news outlets, to filmmakers and technologists, your support will help us to train journalists and digital rights activists, and offer business expertise to media outlets. Your support will also help us to ensure that all investigations and reporting will be not only accurate, but also of high quality.
“Without Internews correspondents, it would not have been possible for us to reach all refugee camps at one time. They helped us in collecting information about our gaps and also in educating the community about health.” — Mohamed Galgalo, Area Coordinator, Yida – South Sudan, Action Africa Help International (AAH-I)
