Print More

RosemaryOur crowdfunding campaign is now 55% funded, all because of you — 66 amazing contributors in 19 countries. Thanks so much for your support. Here’s a look at what your generosity is making possible:

Meet our first fellow! Rosemary Nwaebuni is an investigative reporter with the POINTER newspaper in Delta State, Nigeria, an area known for its big oil production and widespread corruption. There’s no way she could have attended workshops at the Global Investigative Journalism Conference without your support.

“Governance is replete with corrupt officials who on a daily basis, perfect ways to subvert and undermine the collective will of the people to advance their selfish end,” she says. “It gives me great joy to go right into their closets to expose and bring them to justice for the ultimate good of society.”

Check out Corruption Paid for in Lives in Nigeria’s Delta State, her investigation into the sorry state of health care in the region.

Help us send more reporters like Rosemary to the GIJC, where they’ll get state-of-the-art training in following documents, data, dirty money, and more. We still need your support, so please share our campaign with friends, family, and colleagues. And thanks again!
