Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs

Our major donor is the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs, providing funding for three of our major programmes: ‘Masarouna “Our Pathway”’ supporting young people’s SRHR in MENA, ‘Right Here Right Now 2 (RHRN2)’ improving SRHR across Africa and South-East Asia and ‘Women, Peace & Security in Yemen’ (WPS), advancing Yemeni women’s participation and influence in relief, recovery and peace processes.


OXFAM Novib is leading the Masarouna “Our Pathway” programme with consortium members Arab Foundation for Freedoms and Equality (AFE) and RNW Media. The programme will mobilise the power of young people for collective action in MENA to support their fight for greater freedom of choice and respect for their SRHR through new and innovative pathways for change.


Rutgers, an international centre of expertise on SRHR, works with RNW Media in the Right Here Right Now 2 (RHRN2) consortium. Rutgers is the lead organisation in RHRN2 to support partners internationally to improve sexual and reproductive health and the acceptance of sexual rights and gender equality in the implementing countries.

Care Nederland

CARE Nederland with RNW Media, implemented the ‘Every Voice Counts’ (EVC) programme in Burundi, Rwanda, Somalia and Sudan. RNTC provided training to increase the technical and media capacity of CARE’s programme, training and coaching teams on persuasive storytelling and tackling social norms through media campaigns and to enable the voices and views of women and youth to be heard by decision makers.


AmplifyChange funds our LGBT and SRHR programme, ‘Rights, evidence, action – amplifying youth voices’ (REA). The Love Matters programme previously implemented REA in India, Kenya and Uganda in partnership with CHOICE for Youth & Sexuality. REA is currently being implemented in Nigeria and the Democratic Republic of Congo.


Nuffic, the Dutch organisation for the integration of international experience in education, provides scholarships for professional journalists, citizen journalists, bloggers and vloggers to participate in our RNTC Media Training sessions.

Dutch Postcode Lottery

The Dutch Postcode Lottery awarded RNW Media a major grant to further develop our digital media interventions for young people, improve their digital literacy and digital agency and prevent online censorship. This grant builds upon the existing partnership between RNW Media and the Dutch Postcode Lottery, that was established in 2018, to invest in RNW Media’s work with the young digital generation living in restrictive settings.

MSI Reproductive Choices (via Global Affairs Canada)

With funding from Global Affairs Canada – MSI, IPPF and RNW Media joined forces in 2020, to collectively address the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic to the sexual and reproductive health and rights of women and girls. RNW Media is increasing access to SRHR information and services among women and young people by strengthening digital platforms in DRC, Kenya, Nigeria, and Yemen. RNTC is also providing training to MSI and IPPF country office staff to improve digital engagement of young people on SRHR.

Packard Foundation

With the awarding of a Packard Innovation Grant, RNW Media in partnership with Mexico Vivo, piloted the ‘One-Stop Pleasure Shop’ which linked young Mexicans from the online pleasure-positive platform Hablemos de sexo y amor directly to youth friendly SRH clinics across Mexico.

Svenska Postkod Stiftelsen

The Swedish Postcode Lottery foundation awarded us a grant to support the development of digital civic spaces and capacity building of young change makers within our Citizens’ Voice programme.

UNESCO in Yemen

The UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation, UNESCO, is an active strategic partner for RNW Media in Yemen. The Manasati30 platform and UNESCO are jointly implementing a number of activities funded by the UN Peacebuilding Fund


In Libya, UNFPA and Huna Libya work together to address Gender-Based Violence (GBV), raising awareness through joint campaigns, challenging social norms and increasing access to GBV information including where survivors can find support and services.

Network partners

Breed Mensenrechten Overleg

Established in 1979, the Breed Mensenrechten Overleg (BMO, ‘Broad Human Rights Consultation’) is a collaborative platform of Netherlands-based human rights and development organisations. BMO members engage in joint lobby and advocacy activities to ensure human rights are well anchored in Dutch foreign policy. Collaboration with the Dutch Ministry of Foreign Affairs and the Dutch Parliament is integral to that effort.

Share-Net International

We are a member of both Share-Net International and its subsidiary Share-Net Netherlands. As the knowledge platform for sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR), Share-Net seeks to achieve all SRHR- and HIV-related sustainable development goals (SDGs).

Youth Now!

In 2017, we formed the Youth Now! coalition. Bringing together Aflatoun International, RNW Media, Save the Children, SPARK, War Child and ZOA, the Coalition’s goal is to accelerate effective responses to the exclusion of large groups of young women and young men aged 15-30 years in fragile states, so they themselves can drive social cohesion and contribute economically to their societies.
