BBC Media Action - The BBC's international development charity

We are the BBC's international development charity, using media to reduce poverty and promote human rights around the world.

Founded 1999

  • Mission statement

    We are the BBC’s international development charity. We believe media inspires and supports individuals and transforms societies.

    We work with media to help reduce poverty and promote rights around the world. Media helps people make sense of events, engage in dialogue, and shape their own lives.

    Yet many millions still lack access to free, reliable and practical information. We work with partners to help poor and marginalised people access their rights, increase their choices, and lead healthier lives. We help people be heard and hold their leaders to account. Our aim is to inform, connect and engage people around the world.

  • Aims

    BBC Media Action - The BBC's international development charity aims to:

    • deliver projects that are designed to have an impact on knowledge, attitudes and practice or behaviour.
    • use media to tackle critical issues facing the world’s poorest people – such as infectious diseases, access to free reliable information, holding leaders to account, and dealing with natural disasters
