About us

Our purpose
is to promote global press freedom and access to liberal journalism
Our vision
is a world where people have access to reliable information, from a diverse range of sources, strengthening their ability to hold power to account
Our strategic goals
Our priorities were established by listening to the challenges and needs that exist in the journalism industry. Our programmes address these three interconnected areas, all of which are essential in a democratic society where people can participate, influence and act.
1. News & Media Literacy
By engaging with audiences and educators, in schools and communities, our media literacy work tackles disinformation, enhancing people’s ability to critically evaluate news.
2. Voice & Agency
Through training, mentorship, bursaries and career guidance, we facilitate opportunities for people from underrepresented backgrounds to use their voice and agency and be included in the media.
3. Media Viability
By collaborating with fellow journalists and news organisations on areas that challenge their viability, we foster their capacity to engage people with fact-based journalism.
