Facts about us
Our story starts in spring 2016, when a small team of editors and journalists from Eastern Europe set up an office in Prague with the support and guidance of the international press freedom NGO Free Press Unlimited. Since then, we have been looking for the best ways to support fact-based and trustworthy journalism in the region and beyond. We receive support from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Czech Republic’s Transition Promotion Program and a range of institutional and private donors.
