Our Mission

The Under-Told Stories Project works to expand, sustain and improve coverage of the world outside America in broadcast, print and emerging new media outlets.  Our challenge is to direct American eyes to the daily concerns of far away people who increasingly affect our lives.  We hope to reawaken the generous curiosity of Americans   —our students in particular— about a world we can no longer ignore.
