Media Matters for Women connects rural women and girls in Africa with journalists who report regularly and professionally on issues relevant to their lives in the languages they understand.
We are a US-registered non-profit organisation established in 2010 that operates through partners in Sierra Leone and Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). We focus on women and girls who are excluded from the digital age due to extreme poverty in Africa.
Our innovative communication networks are changing the way African women receive, share, and use information. We are proving that the dissemination of reliable information in multiple languages can play a vital role in transforming women’s lives.
