Our Mission


The GroundTruth Project is dedicated to training a new generation of international correspondents and documentary filmmakers to go out in the world to produce social justice journalism that enlightens and informs.

We work across generations, media platforms and cultural backgrounds, creating life-changing opportunities for early-career journalists as they tell the most important stories of their generation — stories that affect us all.



The GroundTruth Project seeks to build the capacity for freedom of expression in developing countries around the world by helping to train a new generation of correspondents who can work together across different media platforms and cultural backgrounds.


GroundTruth focuses on issues of social justice including human rights, freedom of expression, emerging democracies, the environment, religious affairs and global health. We work to foster dialogue and engagement about these issues, with the aim of finding solutions as well as exposing injustice.
