About Us

At Internews, we believe everyone deserves trustworthy news and information to make informed decisions about their lives and hold power to account. We train journalists and digital rights activists, tackle disinformation, and offer business expertise to help media outlets become financially sustainable. We do all of this in partnership with local communities – who are the people best placed to know what works.

We support independent media in 100 countries, from radio stations in refugee camps, to hyper-local news outlets, to individual activists and reporters. We’ve helped our partners reach millions of people with quality, local information that saves lives, improves livelihoods, and holds institutions accountable.

Internews is an international nonprofit with 30 offices around the world, including headquarters in California, Washington DC, London and Paris, and regional hubs in Bangkok, Kyiv, and Nairobi. Internews is registered as a 501(c)3 nonprofit in California, EIN 94-3027961, in England and Wales as a Charity no. 1148404 and Company no. 7891107 and in France as Non-Profit Association SIRET no. 425 132 347 000 13.

 Our Core Values

 Adopted in 2015, our core values were developed as a reflection of who we are, how we work together, and what we aspire to as a community:

  • Listen and learn continuously
    We are curious and responsive, driven by a spirit of creativity and innovation.
  • Build community
    We value open communication and dialogue. We treat each other kindly, collaborate, and support each other.
  • Act with integrity and persistence
    We build trust, hold ourselves to a high standard, and don’t give up.
  • Commit to making a difference
    We are passionate about improving lives and creating positive change in the world.
  • Bring optimism and excitement
    We approach our work with enthusiasm and love what we do.
  • The root of our strategy is to improve the health of information environments. Healthy information environments are defined by the presence of good, accurate, evidence-based information — information that everyone can access safely, that consumers know how to critically assess, and that is valued by communities and sustained by business models that work. In healthy information environments, governments and businesses are accountable for keeping it that way.

    Good Information

    Internews defines good information as anything that is firmly rooted in facts and evidence and is intended to enrich and improve lives. Recognizing that everyone has the potential to be producers and sharers of information, we still assert that good information is rooted in the fundamental principles and practices of independent journalism: truth, accuracy, fairness, inclusion, transparency, and accountability.

    Safe Access


    True access means that everyone, everywhere can safely get the locally relevant information they need from diverse sources, in languages they understand. To reduce the access divide, Internews prioritizes information-vulnerable populations.

    Critical Assessment


    Internews strives to ensure that people are able to sift through the noise of disinformation and misinformation to find the good information they need to make informed choices. People need the skills to engage with and critically assess the information they are consuming.

    Strong Business Models

    The past decade has seen a precipitous drop in the viability of the news business in every corner of the world. In addition to providing resources, tools, and peer-to-peer mentoring to the business side of news, Internews is advancing strategies designed to create financially viable, resilient media, including mentoring publishers’ business teams, offering leadership training, developing strategies for audience-led content, nurturing startups, creating industrywide alliances, and providing technology upgrades to partners.

    Accountable Institutions

    We work to hold businesses and platforms accountable in recognizing and upholding their responsibilities to independent media and freedom of expression. Recognizing that laws, existing and new, are actively being used to arrest or hinder journalists and other content creators, we work to address the ever-increasing physical and digital security threats facing the journalists, cultural producers, technologists, and others risking their lives to bring information to their communities.
