Objectives of the organisation

RNW Media’s vision is to contribute to a world where young people in restrictive settings confidently claim their rights, assume their place in society, and shape a better future.

Our mission is to identify young people’s needs, and to bring young people together in user-owned digital communities where they can safely engage on taboos and sensitive topics and generate strong stories for advocacy to unleash their potential for social change.

RNW Media is active in China, Burundi DRC, Mali Rwanda, Kenya, Uganda, Nigeria, Egypt, Yemen, Libya and India.
