Fojo’s mandate is to strengthen free, independent and professional journalism.
Our support can target a local university that offers basic courses in journalism, an NGO that defends the rights of journalists and freedom of expression, editorial staff that strive to improve editorial routines, or a media institute that systematically attempts to improve journalism. To assist building national capacity is the key to a long-term sustainable media development. Together we develop journalism.

Independent media institutions are important for the development of journalism and a free press. National media institutes provide meeting places for journalists where they can research, produce and file stories. The institutes arrange training for journalists, promote self-regulation and advocate a free and responsible media. Over the years, Fojo has assisted the establishment of media institutes in several countries.

Media in conflict areas face particular challenges. Editors are often appointed on political merits and reporters that try to publish balanced and impartial journalism are discouraged, or even killed, by the conflicting parties.
