By supporting this site, first of all you help yourself as a citizen of this world. The Turtle likes to treat its visitors as people who enjoy reading important stuff not just entertaining clickbaits; in other words it does not regard its readers as consumers of news. Secondly, you encourage a solo mum continue doing her work properly; therefore you support female thinking, writing and creativity. Thirdly, you are investingin a new sort of storytelling; I’d like to coin the term Diasporic Journalism.

The Turtle has no “house”; it follows no line or direction. Restless, it moves in order to survive. It is on a journey towards truth, observing everything on its way. Although very slow, this little creature is powerful, a fighter who holds up its shield against misinformation, fake news, propaganda and other political dangers.

The Turtle is an unbiased, self-funding journalism project. In order to keep its independence, it depends on donations and funding, and also on volunteer work. Even by donating a few euros (or dollars), you can help sustain this quite unique and innovative project, which tries to marry Journalism with ‘Techné’, an ancient Greek word for which there is no equivalent in English – it includes a variety of meanings from the fine arts and all forms of skilled craftsmanship to morals and politics and various scientific skills.

Sincerely yours

Helen Vrontis
Foundress & Director of The Turtle
