Mission and vision
‘People deserve to know.’ All people are entitled to unbiased information. This enables them to assess their own living conditions and influence these. Freedom of the press and freedom of information are vital for gathering and spreading reliable, unbiased information.
Our mission is clear. Free Press Unlimited works to ensure that independent news and information are and remain available to people all over the world. Particularly in countries where there is little to no press freedom. By supporting local media professionals and journalists, we help people gain and keep access to the information they need to survive and develop.
This mission follows from our vision, which can be summed up with the statement: People deserve to know. Every individual has the right to objective, unbiased information. Without timely access to relevant and reliable information, it becomes difficult for people to clearly assess their situation – which means that they cannot make an informed decision. This gives them less influence over the course of their own lives.
Only when journalists are able to do their job safely, without being obstructed or intimidated, can they collect and share reliable and unbiased information. The media consequently play a crucial role when it comes to providing free and unrestricted access to information – information that people can use to develop as a human being, or to hold those in power accountable.
