Internews’ Asia portfolio consists of diverse initiatives broadening access to information and freedom of expression, often set against a backdrop of profound political and social transition. Our work supports democratic reform, locally relevant, locally owned information resources, and collaboration between media, civil society, and tech. Many of our projects also aim to engage ethnic and religious minorities, women, and young people, increasing opportunities to develop and publish content, whether it is developing compelling, data-driven news stories or counteracting hate speech on social media. Increasingly, health and humanitarian information services, localized digital safety tools and trainings, and pioneering Information Ecosystem Assessments are also core capabilities within the Asia portfolio. Finally, we are making an intentional effort to foster inclusion in Asia, with a focus on empowering women and girls, and amplifying their voices to advocate for fairer societies.
