About Us

The world’s most dangerous countries for women 2018

We are the philanthropic arm of Thomson Reuters, the world’s biggest news and information provider. We are registered as an independent charity both in the UK and in the USA.

The Thomson Reuters Foundation stands for free, independent journalism, human rights, women’s empowerment, and the rule of law, and we play a leading role in the global fight against human trafficking.

We use the skills, values, and expertise of Thomson Reuters to run programmes that trigger real change and empower people around the world, including free legal assistance, journalism and media training, coverage of the world’s under-reported stories, and the Trust Conference.

We tackle global issues and achieve lasting impact.

We are a rapidly growing organisation with over 90 staff members around the world. We speak 30 languages, represent 24 countries, and work in 15 office locations across the Americas, Africa, Asia and Europe. We’re a mix of journalists, lawyers, social innovators, media and communication trainers. We pride ourselves on our dynamic, quirky, and entrepreneurial spirit.

From award-winning investigative journalism to strategic initiatives that fight modern-day slavery worldwide, the impact and presence of the Thomson Reuters Foundation continues to grow, changing laws and making an impact internationally.
