The €10,000 grant supported the startup of IWPR Netherlands to strengthen its European and Global network and improve the Dutch weekly service.

IWPR gives a voice to citizens, journalists and human rights activists in war zones and countries in transition. IWPR trains and provides platforms for local reporters, strengthening the institutional capacity of local media and community groups, to create space for a locally constructive debate. IWPR’s programs work in over two dozen countries.

The international NGO is registered as a charity in the United Kingdom, an organisation with tax-exempt status in the United States, and as a charitable foundation in The Netherlands. Each division is overseen by a Governance Committee, to ensure legal, regulatory and fiscal compliance. The chairs of the respective committees are: Sir David Bell, IWPR-UK; Ralph Isham, IWPR-US; Derk Sauer, IWPR-NL.

IWPR finances and financial policy are overseen by the International Finance Committee, which comprises: UK Treasurer William Gardiner (Committee Chair), US Treasurer Chris Canavan, NL Treasurer Geert Glimmerveen, Finance Director Robyn Mordeno, Executive Director Anthony Borden.
