We are Powered by the People, Corporations are NOT Welcome Here
In order to maintain editorial independence from the elites, who dictate media coverage through corporate contributions, we have decided to forgo advertisement revenue. Ghion Journal is a community based publication, the writers are of the people because we are with the people. The writers, from the founder to guest contributors, do not pontificate behind ivory towers. We cast our lot with the masses across America and throughout the world.

You can make a one time contribution or make automatic monthly contributions. Below the donation button are other ways you can be a part of this endeavor and help amplify our message.
We will not take a red cent from corporations, this will enable the current writers and those to come in the future to speak truth to power without fear financial repercussions. We actually take it one step further, based on Teodrose Fikre’s experience with Foco Cafe (read Business Case for Kindness), we have decided to power the entire Ghion Journal venture through the kindness and support of our readers and audience. In order to keep up with overhead, compensate the writers, procure resources that will enable us to do more documentaries and focus on people who are making a difference and expand the reach out Ghion Journal, we are asking you to support and contribute the best way you can.
Other ways to empower us
You will also find books written by the founder Teodrose Fikre, the profits from which will go towards building this publication (click on Ghion Library in the menu bar). In the coming days, we will also feature merchandise (T-shirts, mouse pads, laptop stickers, pens etc) which you can purchase. Our aim is to make sure that the Ghion Journal not only can remain a going concern but can attract more thinkers and writers to this site.We do not want to lose focus on our number one objective, we want to affect positive change in our communities and around the world. Words are powerful, we have the audacity to believe we can make a difference. So we ask you, the people, to power a website that is off the people, by the people, for the people. Below is a video of the founder and editor Teodrose Fikre describing the Ghion Journal in further detail.
