  2. Horytna academy: training program for Egyptian youth

    Traditional media, citizen journalism and community radio have been important in setting the stage for change in Egypt. As the country transitions towards democracy, the media has a higher responsibility to raise awareness on political, social and cultural issues, such as expression of the right to freedom of expression. The massive use of non-professional footage by traditional channels such as Al Jazeera and the fast development of citizen blogs and websites to report on the events has brought an alternative method to hold the government and authorities accountable.

  3. Building mobile, multimedia capacity for rural youth

The training provided covered, among others, digital music production, digital photography and videography. This project aims to build capacity within the Container Project to assist a rural community in creating a range of multimedia products which will have a material impact on the lives of its people, in particular of its marginalized youth.

    Khorixas, with an estimated population of 68,735 people, is one of the lest developed parts of Namibia.

  10. Fostering media freedom in Tunisia through the creation of a desk officer temporary position in Tunisia

    In Tunisia, both the print press and broadcasting were tightly controlled by public authorities. The mainstream press toed the party line and authorities regularly blocked access to alternate news sources.

The new government will now be faced with the difficult task of ensuring a smooth democratic transition, involving: 1) Creating a favourable environment for the media to fulfil their democratic potential will be essential in this process. 2) Putting in place new media laws.
