In our ideal world everyone has access to independent, reliable and timely information. To make this possible, Free Press Unlimited supports media and journalists worldwide.
Our vision is short and to the point: People deserve to know. All over the world.
Our mission stems from Article 19 of the 1948 Universal Declaration of Human Rights:
“Everyone has the right to freedom of opinion and expression; this right includes freedom to hold opinions without interference and to seek, receive and impart information and ideas through any media and regardless of frontiers.”
Everyone has the right to independent, reliable and timely information. People need that information to control their living conditions and to make the right decisions.
To that end, press freedom and freedom of information are indispensable. That is why Free Press Unlimited supports local media professionals and journalists, particularly in countries with limited (press) freedom. They are close to their audience and are the best guarantee for a sustainable, professional and diverse media landscape. We enable them to give people access to the information that helps them survive, to develop themselves, and with which they can monitor their governments.
Our Equity, Diversity and Inclusion Statement
“In pursuit of our mission, we are committed to promoting equity, diversity and inclusion in all aspects of our work. Free Press Unlimited believes in a world where everyone can be who they are regardless of their background. We are curious, open minded and engaged in creating a better-informed world for everyone.”
Free Press Unlimited's EDI statement is a reflection of its mission and values. It serves as a commitment to creating a more equitable and diverse organisation, and through our work, contributes to a more equitable media landscape in different contexts, thereby advancing our vision for a world where "people deserve to know."
We are currently developing a comprehensive Equity, Diversity and Inclusion policy that will guide us in the implementation of the statement.
Our core values
Free Press Unlimited does not accept assignments from financial pressure groups or political groups and follows her own independent strategy. This means that Free Press Unlimited works with independent (media) partners who are able to execute their activities freely and independently and whose aim is to search for the truth and provide information to the public.
Free Press Unlimited aims to inspire local media professionals and organisations to get the best out of their talents and opportunities by sharing knowledge and ideas. We are result-oriented, we make a difference and reach a large audience.
Free Press Unlimited searches for smart, creative solutions for the benefit of free access to information, even if there are obstacles or barriers.
Free Press Unlimited is personally involved and persistent in matters concerning the local citizens and (media) organisations. Our approach is a long term involvement with a focus on supporting individuals and media organisations in their development so they can become autonomous.
The starting point for Free Press Unlimited is the local situation and culture. We are looking for partnership and participation and we take into account the local capacity and technological development.
