About our work

Our work with media and communication across the Middle East and North Africa strengthens and supports local broadcasters to bridge divides, improve political participation and accountability, and engage young people on issues that matter.

From our base in Tunis, we are working in Libya to support El Kul, a social media platform with over 1 million followers, to foster social cohesion, combat disinformation and encourage inclusion in a deeply divided country.

In Algeria, we support public service media to explore issues that matter most to communities, to search out the voices of marginalised groups, including women, and to create entertaining and informative programming around entrepreneurship and financial literacy.

As COVID-19 has spread across the globe, our work in Algeria and Libya has expanded to include Lifeline training for media outlets around how media and communication can save lives.

We are also proud of our past work in Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Tunisia and the Palestinian Territories, where we have worked extensively in both immediate humanitarian crises and in the longer-term, to bridge divides, build understanding and foster more independent and impartial media.
