Hirondelle USA is a non-profit organization that advances the right to information through the practice of journalism. Through our partnership with Fondation Hirondelle we bring solutions to the opportunities and challenges of implementing large-scale media projects in the world’s most vulnerable and volatile regions.
We believe that creating public service media that evolve into effective media businesses that are viable and financially independent is the best guarantee that communities will have access to the information they need to lead healthy and productive lives as engaged citizens.
Atem, Lucy, Gabriel and Shila are journalists working with Fondation Hirondelle in South Sudan. Here's what they think access to unbiased news has meant for them and the communities they report from.
