Free Press Unlimited
“An informed public opinion is what leaders fear most.” -Sina Odugbemi, World Bank
For most people around the world, access to reliable information is by no means a matter of course. Nevertheless, everyone needs impartial information. So that they can assess their own situation and influence it. If you don’t know what’s going on around you, how can you make the right decisions?
Free Press Unlimited works to ensure that reliable news and information are and remain available to people across the globe. Particularly people in countries where there is little to no press freedom. By supporting local media professionals and journalists, Free Press Unlimited helps to enable as many people as possible to gain and keep access to the information they require to survive and develop.
Free Press Unlimited is active in over forty countries, in those areas where its help is needed the most. In these areas, Free Press Unlimited focuses on strengthening the capacity of local media professionals and media organisations. Together with these partners, we create room for people to speak freely, debate social issues and find out what is going on in their immediate environment.
In each area, we work together with local journalists, media pioneers and media organisations – who can make a difference. Free Press Unlimited supports these change agents in the development of their knowledge and skills. We do this in a variety of ways:
● Developing independent media channels
● Give people a voice in the media
● Give media professionals a lead with knowledge
● Support media pioneers in entrepeneuring and growth
Free Press Unlimited is able to do this thanks to the generous support of private donors, numerous funds and institutional sponsors.
