Our team is here to help, and to connect you with thousands of committed journalists worldwide who are fighting the good fight — exposing the corrupt and holding power accountable. Wishing you a great holiday and a joyous new year,

Help Us Strengthen Investigative Reporting Around the World

Dear Friends of GIJN,

As this difficult year comes to a close, we want to take a couple minutes to ask for your support. GIJN’s core mission is to strengthen and spread investigative journalism around the world. Nearly every service we offer is free – our workshops, webinars, tip sheets, reporting guides, Help Desk, and Resource Center. We do this because we believe that investigative journalism is a force for good in the world – because watchdog journalism that bolsters freedom, transparency, and accountability is worth fighting for. Our global staff comes from 14 countries, many of them – Pakistan, Bangladesh, Uganda, South Africa, Mexico, Venezuela, Hungary, Jordan, Russia, Ukraine – on the front lines of the struggle for democracy and human rights.
