Like in all our countries of operation, in Ukraine, Internews plays a key role as a hub of expertise, coordination, and knowledge-sharing among media organizations and companies.
Internews has been working for 35 years to support the truth and those who report it. We work through local partnerships in over 50 countries to design and deliver solutions which ensure people and communities can access accurate and reliable news and information. In an era of diminished trust in media, evaporation of local news outlets, and where only one in seven people live in a country with a free media, this work is more important than ever.
We support local free press advocates to ensure robust access to information, advance systemic inclusion of marginalized voices, filling critical gaps in quality content, and supporting the ability of people to critically engage with news and information.
As part of our major U-Media Program [in operations till September, 2018], we have reached a total of 4,000 participants with the Program-supported media literacy events, while our media monitoring activities have benefited over 1 million people.
Infographics explain our results spanning from our support to the creation of Ukraine’s public service broadcasting and media reforms to journalist professional development and anti-corruption initiatives.
