BBC-Media-ActionPeople need information to help them make decisions and to know their rights. But many people in the developing world lack access to useful, timely and reliable information.
BBC Media Action is the BBC’s international development charity. It uses the power of media and communication to help reduce poverty and support people in understanding their rights.
For over a decade it has been working to help transform lives in some of the poorest, hardest-to-reach parts of the world. Its projects reach more than 200 million people in 24 countries where media can be used to inform, connect and empower.
The global reach and reputation of the BBC strengthen its work, but it is not funded by the licence fee. As a registered charity, grants and donations make the work possible.
