Why we exist

The right to information and the right to express your opinion are established in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. Yet only one person in seven lives in a country with a free press.

What’s more, freedom of information isn’t only limited by laws. Sometimes people are afraid to speak their mind. And some topics are simply too sensitive to mention.

RNW Media - Informed people shape a better future.

RNW Media helps people have the conversations they care about, and get the information they need to make the choices and decisions that can change their lives.

RNW Media’s mission statement
We connect communities and change-makers through innovative use of media and training to enable young people to make informed choices. We are an NGO using media for social change.
