Power Of Information
The power of news is that it can affect government policy, shape legal reform, assist law enforcement, empower civil society and engage business. The foundation highlights stories that can have real impact.
The support received from People's Postcode Lottery players will allow the Thomson Reuters Foundation to expand its reporting from the frontlines of the fight against modern slavery, LGBT+ rights and land and property rights. These issues are often not covered by mainstream media outlets.
