Our Mission:

  • Information is the power that can change the world. We are in the midst of a revolution in human communication that is profoundly reshaping our future. Yet, for nearly half the planet, the promise of this revolution has not been fulfilled.
  • Internews is an international media development organization whose mission is to empower local media worldwide to give people the news and information they need, the ability to connect, and the means to make their voices heard.

Our Vision for the Future:

We envision a world where everyone can communicate freely with anyone, anywhere, and exchange the news and information they need to shape the future of their communities and the world.

Our Values:

  • The Power of Information: We believe that free flowing, locally produced and editorially independent news and information has the power to transform lives and enrich communities.
  • Journalistic Integrity: We uphold the values of journalistic independence and professional ethics in our work, in our organization and with our funders. Consistent with these values, Internews advocates for the importance of quality, local, independent media and the right to access information, but does not take a position on other policy issues. We reject any funding or support that would compromise our organizational independence.
  • Innovation: Working in some of the most difficult environments around the world, Internews pioneers applications of new technologies for development and designs and implements innovative solutions to programmatic and operational challenges.
  • Persistence: We recognize that social progress involves a commitment to long-term engagement, flexibility in approach, and persistent encouragement of partners and programs.
