Who are we?
Direkt36 is a non-profit investigative reporting center that we launched in 2015 in response to the deterioration of independent journalism in Hungary. We keep a distance from the daily news cycle and focus all our efforts on holding the powerful to account and expose social injustices. Our team of seven people conducts long-term investigations on topics that other news organizations stay away from because of lack of resources or political pressure. In our projects, among others, we have exposed how the family of Prime Minister Viktor Orbán has been secretly receiving public funds; how Vladimir Putin’s Russia has expanded its influence in Hungary; and how people close to the government have benefited from controversial COVID-related procurements.
Why should you support us?
For Direkt36 the main revenue source is the donations coming from our supporting members. Their support is the guarantee of our independence and is the key for our sustainability. The more supporters we have, the stronger the organization can be in holding the powerful to account.
