Next Generation Journalism | Mentoring early career reporters and photojournalists | Reporting important untold stories via top tier media

We partner early career American journalists with early career journalists in developing countries around the world, countries where there are stories that need to be told. Round Earth's award-winning veteran reporters, editors and photographers mentor these next gen teams. Their reporting and photojournalism reaches huge audiences worldwide, via top tier media outlets in the countries where these stories are taking place and also in the United States (ie NPR, New York Times).

The result is rich, balanced, knowledgeable reporting and a rare learning experience for next gen journalists around the world.

We tell important stories about insecurity and ingenuity, travails and triumphs, usually from developing countries. Without us, these stories might not get told, yet they contribute to a greater understanding of our interconnected world. Democracy depends on the kind of reliable independent news and information that we produce and that is all too rare these days.

Your individual contributions – of any size – make it possible for us to continue this important work. Donations from individuals like you help us receive support from national foundations such as the W.K. Kellogg Foundation and the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation.
