Internews began working in Haiti in 2007 under a three-year grant from the US Agency for International Development. The project built the technical and journalism skills of 40 community radio stations throughout Haiti that form a network called RAMAK (Rasanbleman Medya pou Aksyon Kominotéé). After the 2010 earthquake in Haiti, Internews trained local journalists and provided support to set up a humanitarian information radio program.
The Internews Earth Journalism Network established a project – InfoAmazonia – that maps the rivers in the Amazon, a main source of livelihood for many communities in South America. Since its launch in 2012, InfoAmazonia has built close to 20 different maps that together display 12GB of geographical data, including deforestation and protected areas.
In 2012, with the support of InSight Crime and Internews, investigative reporters from online media outlets in Colombia, El Salvador, Guatemala, and Mexico collaborated on a regional multimedia investigation into the human rights fallout of organized crime in Latin America.
