Global Press Institute is an award-winning, high-impact social venture that uses journalism as a development tool to educate, employ and empower women in the developing world to produce high-quality local news coverage that elevates global awareness and ignites social change.

GPI is building a network of professional women journalists throughout the world who earn a fair wage for reporting on their local communities. Adhering to the ethical principles and rigorous practice of traditional journalism, GPI believes in a sturdy recipe of training, story coaching, local sourcing and fact checking yield world-changing news coverage from some of the world’s most under-represented communities. The unique coverage of issues overlooked by mainstream media contributes directly to the development and empowerment of their local communities, brings greater transparency to their countries, and changes the way the world views their people and cultures.
