You can nurture the next generation of global citizens. Help connect more young people to global education opportunities.


Watch to see how your support helps youth connect the dots between issues and across borders


News Decoder needs your support to continue to provide high-quality global learning experiences for students at our 21 partner schools and expand our reach to bring more youth voices to the table.

We aim to:


1. Grow our school network by 50% over the next two years

One of the most valuable experiences we offer students is the chance to interact with peers in different parts of the world, to learn about each other’s lives and to understand diverse perspectives on issues of common concern.

The richness of these exchanges lies in the diversity of our school partnerships. One of our key goals is to build our school network — with particular emphasis on Africa, Asia and Latin America — ensuring it reflects as wide a range of geographies, cultures and socio-economic backgrounds as possible. Your support creates opportunities for more schools to engage with global issues no matter their geography or means.

2. Engage more youth with open-access resources

News Decoder has a large and growing audience of young readers, followers and contributors in countries across the world. Now we want to offer our global audience a richer range of educational resources.

This October, we’re launching a new section to our website, full of resources for students and educators including quizzes, expert webinars, contests and more chances to be published.

Your gift will help us grow and diversify these resources in the years ahead so we can reach more young people in more places with unique experiences that expand their horizons, deepen their understanding of global issues and build their journalism and citizenship skills.

3. Step up our support for global educators

Educators are key collaborators. They link us to students, champion our mission within their institutions and help us shape the educational resources we offer young people.

Your generosity will create platforms for professional development and knowledge-sharing and celebrate global educators’ achievements, both within our schools programme and outside.

How Your Donation Will Be Used

Over the next two years, News Decoder’s goal is to raise $175,000/145,000€ through a variety of revenue streams to fund our future growth. With the Making Connections campaign, we aim to kickstart this drive by raising the first $30,000 USD/25,000€. The money we raise will be apportioned to the three goals of the expansion strategy as depicted on the left.

News Decoder keeps our costs to a minimum. Our global, remote team includes three full-time staff members and one part-time. Only 5.5% of our annual expenditure goes towards overhead costs, with a further 12% generating revenue we need to run our non-profit. More than 80% of our income goes to delivering our programs.
