‘Buy One, Gift One’ initiative mitigates risk for freelance journalists and charities


Global security and risk consultancy AKE International has launched a ‘Buy One, Gift One’ initiative to support charities, non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and freelance journalists operating in the world’s most challenging environments.

AKE’s country risk platform Global Intake (GI) has been used as a pre-deployment planning tool and trusted source of location risk intelligence for over two decades. Today, the platform is utilised by a diverse range of clients including energy supermajors, media networks, insurance companies, NGOs and governmental organisations and departments.

GI provides access to online country risk analysis, emailed regular reports providing political, economic and security analysis, strategic forecasting, ratings and incident mapping. The platform contains 198 detailed country profiles updated in real time, as well as a unique security and political risk rating scale and an archive of historical analysis going back almost two decades.

AKE’s Claire Fleming comments:

“Budget cuts and the volatile geopolitical environment continue to impact individuals and organisations working to deliver vital services on the ground and report from some of the world’s most challenging locations.

Meanwhile, we know that it has become very difficult for many businesses to commit to the levels of corporate social responsibility that were possible before the impact of recent global crises.

To support our clients and community in these difficult times, for every Global Intake subscription purchased, we will gift a subscription to a charity, NGO or freelance journalist. The idea being to provide that individual or organisation with a world-class tool to plan for and monitor deployments, make informed decisions and mitigate risk to personnel while carrying out their essential work.

I think that the importance of the work of freelance journalists and humanitarian charities has never been so visible, nor have the risks and challenges they face. Our ‘Buy One, Gift One’ initiative is a simple yet tangible way in which we can help.”

Freelance journalists, charities and NGOs can register as recipients and purchasers will have the option to choose their GI gift recipient from this list.

It is hoped that this initiative will support corporate social responsibility goals at a time when many companies are feeling the pressure of economic uncertainty.
