The IMMF seeks to build a better future for the region by helping to develop journalism in Cambodia, Laos, Thailand and Vietnam. While we remember those who died, our focus is on helping the living -- colleagues in societies emerging from decades of war, poverty and isolation.

Based in Thailand, gateway to the region, IMMF draws on a world-wide network -- both formal and personal -- to run training courses, foster exchanges and fund important media activities that will nourish a new generation of journalists.

By putting present and future opinion leaders from the region through intensive, highly interactive training, we hope to build bridges among the five Southeast Asian nations. Many of our alumni form lasting personal friendships and professional contacts through our courses.

The IMMF is totally apolitical and independent. While it does not promote any particular journalistic style or cultural bias, it does address itself to establishing standards of ethics and pratice within the context of Indochina and its neighbors.

The foundation is unique among media-support organisations because it was founded and spearheaded by working journalists with wide-ranging contacts in the region.  Many of our members and supporters covered Indochina's conflicts.

 IMMF is a hands-on organisation, with minimal overheads. Board members, trustees and supporters freely donate their time and talents. Paid professionals are employed to help in administration, accounting and training.
