PPMN is a non-profit organization established in 2006 to develop the professionalism of all forms of media and to extend access to information in Indonesia and other countries in Asia. It does so through capacity building programs, establishing new media in remote locations, emergency assistance for disaster areas, media content production and book publication.
PPMN originates from a decision by KBR68H, Indonesia’s first and only independent radio news agency, to separate its non-profit programs from its for-profit activities in order to ensure maximum transparency and efficiency.
PPMN offers a cost-effective means of supporting and implementing cutting edge and strategically planned media assistance programs that address key information needs, managed by an Indonesian organization that conforms to international standards of programmatic and financial accountability and transparency. PPMN is also able to respond rapidly and effectively following disasters to help local media get back on air speedily and ensure information flow.
