Community Media and Citizen Journalism

Home Community Media and Citizen Journalism

We work with local media to provide critically needed news and information to the community, help contextualize national development programs within community frameworks and bring these goals closer to their intended beneficiaries. We promote diversity and the inclusion of women and youth in local media and build their media literacy skills. We support the use of new technology in social media, mobile phones and various other online devices that are bringing the producers of content, which includes both mainstream media and citizen journalists, in closer contact with the consumers of it. We operate a news portal named Ajker Arban which specializes in hyperlocal news.
