International journalism faces many difficult challenges today. There is the physical danger and risk of violence in reporting major stories in many parts of the world. There is the increasing risk of imprisonment by hostile government or capture by non-state actors.
Perhaps the greatest challenge however lies in the lack of resources available to cover the many major issues which largely go uncovered today. The past decade has seen a drastic decrease in the resources available to these involved in international journalism, whether print, broadcast or digital, and without regard to region or country.
It is the hope of Galloway Family Foundation to increase in a modest way those resources available to international journalists by funding quality reporters to cover the great stories of our day.
