Why become a Member

When you become a member of The Probe, you will get access to our exclusive stories and investigations. By becoming a member, you also support us in our endeavour to bring in social impact through our journalistic pursuits. Your membership will help us hold people in power to account. Owing to your support, we get to pursue Impact Journalism and you in turn become the changemaker....

Your membership not only helps us invest more time, talent and resources on further stories but also would enable us to make our content more freely accessible to those who cannot afford to pay for a membership. In short, what you provide with your membership would decide how farther we could reach and serve.

Independent media requires independent ownership. We have decided to keep our platform free from advertisements. We value your time. We do not wish to distract you with intrusive advertisements. We are keen you engage with us by way of conversations, invest quality time discussing meaningful subjects and help us pursue Journalism that matters to you.

Why should you pay for news?

  • Good journalism needs resources
  • The more resources a journalistic pursuit has access to, the better its content and in turn, impact. Good journalism needs money from people, not corporations or politicians. A lot of hard work, man-power, research and technology goes behind each good production, which costs us money. When you pay for Independent Journalism, you help us sustain.

  • We said no to ads
  • We value your time and do not wish to distract you with intrusive ads. But by saying no to ads, we have said no to the revenue source that sustains most news organisations. By saying no to ads, we have placed our faith in you, the people, to help us survive. The news space is shrinking as we speak. The news-to-ad ratio on most platforms today has tipped over and news has become a mere filler. Advertorials and paid news have taken over journalistic content. So, we decided that we will not take ads.

  • Our allegiance is only to you
  • We provide you with news that is credible, unbiased and free of all propaganda. To do this, we have pledged to not be funded by any political parties or corporations. We believe that Journalism is a social responsibility that must be supported and funded by the society, by its people. So, whether you pay for our news or not, our allegiance is to you alone.

  • You are not paying us alone
  • As a member of The Probe, you are not just paying us, you are paying to impact the lives of the underprivileged and the voiceless. Impact and social empowerment is at the core of our journalism. Your membership could help us do more Impact Journalism Projects and help bring change in the society and make a difference to the lives of people that we report on. Your membership could touch a few lives and make a difference to communities.
