Global Press Institute
Global Press Institute uses journalism as a development tool to educate, employ and empower women in the developing world to produce professional news coverage that elevates global awareness and ignites social change. This allows the world to see unique, diversified coverage of issues that are often overlooked by mainstream media and leads not only to female empowerment, but community empowerment and development. Since 2006, GPI has trained and employed 135 women across 26 developing countries. Now, more than 5 million people in over 160 countries are reading GPI stories each month.
Mission Statement: Global Press Institute works to educate, employ, and empower women in the developing world.
Partnership Grant. The Skees Family Foundation started working with GPI in 2014. We feel their mission to train and employ women in some of the poorest countries in the world is a wonderful tool not only to help those women and their communities, but also to educate the rest of the world on issues that normally would not receive media attention.
