The History of Global Press Institute
Founder and Publisher Cristi Hegranes started Global Press Institute, the training center for GPJ reporters, in 2006 after serving as a foreign correspondent in Nepal. There, she saw entrenched problems in the modern journalism model, in which foreigners report in areas where they don’t often speak the local languages, don’t understand local cultures and lack access to real people. While reporting from a village in eastern Nepal, Cristi met Pratima, a community matriarch. Pratima was passionate, literate and an incredible storyteller. But she lacked two critical tools: journalism training and a credible global platform. To meet those needs, Cristi created Global Press Institute and its publishing platform, Global Press Journal. Graduates from Global Press Institute become reporters for the Journal. They have a high level of professional skills that empower them to tell stories about their own communities with social, historical and political context.
