We believe in journalism as a tool to crack the complexity of the reality we live in. We share a passion for telling stories outside the inertias of mainstream information flows, focusing on conflicts and human rights around the globe.
Other than covering empty gaps across the map we also look for the means so that this critical work can be carried out by local journalists. We want to share our experience with those who live in ground zero so that they can tell their own story.
