I believe in giving people a leg up towards sustainability while enabling them to retain their dignity and self determination. The money invested in Kiva comes from the income generated via Google Adsense from a community website I run in England www.brookmans.com and a website I run to help journalists in the developing world www.mediahelpingmedia.org .
I work in the field of international media development as a media strategy consultancy and journalism training. My main work is in transition and post-conflict countries and areas where the media is still developing in Africa, Asia, The Caucasus, CIS, Balkans and Central America. I also work with exiled media.
