Internews has been working continuously in Ukraine since 1993. Through grant support and targeted technical assistance, Internews helps a wide array of local partners carry out projects that they design and implement themselves. These initiatives include educating citizens and journalists about the public service role of a responsible media sector, increasing the quality and quantity of investigative reporting by local journalists, helping traditional media increase their online offerings, providing legal support to journalists and media outlets, and reforming media legislation to approach European standards. Through trainings, consultations, and grants, Internews also helps its partners build their own organizational capacity in finance, administration, digital security, and other areas.
