Through funds raised from subscription sales, we have started a micro-grant program to support reporting and storytelling on global humanitarian issues. The projects we support offer interesting takes on stories that do not often make it to the mainstream. Our grants program has supported a photographer in the Philippines who is documenting women of low means surviving with breast cancer; A Yemeni female journalist reporting on the plight of families displaced by conflict in southern Yemen; and a reporting team investigating a mysterious kidney disease afflicting people in India and Sri Lanka. Our goal is to offer a modicum of financial support to people who have compelling stories to tell, but need an extra bit of help.
As we grow, so will our grants program. If you have any questions please send us an email.
Here is how to apply.
