Meet the BBC's international charity
The power of media for good
BBC Media Action is the BBC’s international charity.
In a world where media can be divisive and untrustworthy, we believe in the power of media and communication to do good.
Our work reaches millions of people facing insecurity, inequality and poverty with information they can trust. We support the independent media essential to democracy and development. And we inform, connect and inspire change in our audiences, providing trusted information, stories and ideas that generate debate and discussion and bridge divides.
We reach more than 100 million people a year – helping to save lives and improve health, protect livelihoods, challenge inequality and build more peaceful and democratic societies.
BBC Media Action is not funded by the BBC licence fee, and instead relies on the generous support of our donors.
