Supporting media development around the world

Today's events can quickly become yesterday's news, but a good story will always endure.

Our job is to help bring those stories to light, by spreading quality journalism and accessible media to every corner of the globe.

The Thomson Foundation is the world's longest-established international media development organisation, with a 50-year history of training journalists in ethical standards and quality reporting across more than 100 countries

We work with media organisations, governments, civil society bodies and commercial entities wishing to sponsor professional excellence in communications.

After half a century, our commitment to the task remains as keen as ever. Our story starts here.
