The Challenge

Media Matters for Women (MMW) connects African women and girls with information

that enables them to access and fully enjoy their rights.  


We are at the forefront of harnessing Bluetooth on mobile phones to address

the unmet information needs of women and girls in rural Africa.


We foster local journalism capabilities, produce original audio content

in a professional podcast format in multiple languages,

and deliver the content to listeners in innovative ways.
