Declarations

We are a non-profit, there to serve the public. We do not sell our stories. Members of the public —our amaB Supporters — and charitable foundations support us.

We are fiercely independent. We do not sell advertising. We do not take funding from governments or corporates. And we do not take funding to investigate specific stories or themes. See our funding policy here.

All donations/grants in a year are vetted and declared publicly.
