fesmedia Africa is the regional media project of the Friedrich Ebert Stiftung. We believe in a free and healthy media environment that advocates for access to information, freedom of expression, and safe digital spaces in Sub- Saharan Africa.
We work closely with Civil Society Organizations, public and academic institutions, to create platforms for robust democratic spaces, conduct regional competitions, and offer educative platforms such as our Right-to-Information sponsored online courses.
Become part of our network and look forward to direct invitations to our events, receive our publications, updates on media information in Africa, and influence our future events and publications with your areas of interest in media development and related domains.
