The Youth Journalism International program, which teaches writing, reporting, ethics and more to young people around the world, is trying to get its charitable benefactor, Global Giving, to stop interfering with YJI's journalism. Specifically, Global Giving is demanding to "protect" the people it serves, instituting a rule that giving bylines to students who write for the project violates their privacy. "I read the words with astonishment," YJI's co-founder writes. "They want a charity devoted to teaching journalism to abandon journalistic principles? Here’s what I wrote back: YJI publishes student work with professional standards, including the requirement that all material carries their full name as a byline. Anyone who doesn't want his or her name used wouldn't participate. So it doesn't make any sense at all for us to use their names, photographs and more on our websites, blogs, social media and other venues but strip them away for reports on Global Giving. Doing so would undermine the entire ethos of transparency and professionalism that has made YJI a reputable voice for students across the globe." YJI includes a pitch to Pulitzer Prize-winning NY Times columnist Nick Kristof, who often recommends Global Giving. "Hey, Nicholas Kristof, Help Us Defend Journalism From Your Favorite Charity," reads the headline.
