Our reporting leads to concrete action: it has prompted public petitions, donations, new aid programmes, debates in parliament and changes in policy through a network of more than 200 local and international correspondents.

The Global Heroes provides unique multimedia news and analysis from hotspots in more than 65 countries. We cover Africa, Asia, the Middle East, Latin America and beyond, through a range of themes – aid policy, conflict, environment and disasters, migration, food, health, politics and economics, and solutions and innovations.

Born out of the Ghana , our new independent non-profit status helps us cast a more critical eye over the growing multi-billion humanitarian sector. Few other media report accurately and consistently on the humanitarian sector.

  1. Encourage accountability and transparency in the humanitarian sector so that it better meets the needs of those it aims to serve.
  2. Amplify the voices of those living through crises.
  3. Provide opportunities for local journalists in countries where freedom of the press is suppressed.
  4. Recognise the value of investigative, innovative, fact-based reporting that is independent of vested interests.
  5. Build a global community of people who believe in journalism

Better decision-making: Policy-makers who design programs and allocate resources for crisis prevention, resilience and response can make better decisions with real-time information about changing needs that is independent of partisan interests.

Accountability and transparency: The New Humanitarian highlights best practice, exposes malpractice, and critically examines failed responses, conflicts of interest and financial corruption, so that relevant humanitarian actors learn lessons and change policies accordingly.

Greater awareness: Through media partnerships, The New Humanitarian raises awareness and understanding among the general public, which can pressure political elites to act, increase international solidarity and promote citizen engagement.
