The VII Foundation’s mission is to transform visual journalism by empowering new voices and creating stories that advocate change. In a world where beliefs and actions are increasingly out-of-sync with facts and realities, transforming visual journalism is an urgent task.
With an emphasis on changing policy and educating youth, our high-profile projects narrate lived experiences, document complex problems, and seek sustainable solutions. Education is at the heart of our mission. The VII Foundation is the first and only media organization dedicated to providing long-term, tuition-free media education for the Majority World and underrepresented communities. We focus on these regions because they are where media training is underfunded or nonexistent.
