Latin America & the Caribbean

Internews began working in Haiti in 2007 under a three-year grant from the US Agency for International Development. The project built the technical and journalism skills of 40 community radio stations throughout Haiti that form a network called RAMAK (Rasanbleman Medya pou Aksyon Kominotéé). After the 2010 earthquake in Haiti, Internews trained local journalists and provided support to set up a humanitarian information radio program.

In 2012, with the support of InSight Crime and Internews, investigative reporters from online media outlets in Colombia, El Salvador, Guatemala, and Mexico collaborated on a regional multimedia investigation into the human rights fallout of organized crime in Latin America.
