The Media Foundation for West Africa (MFWA) is a regional, independent, non-partisan, non-governmental organisation that works to promote freedom of expression and media development across West Africa. In the last 24 years, the MFWA has worked with both governmental and non-governmental stakeholders and partners at the national, regional and international levels to contribute to improving the media and freedom of expression landscape in West Africa. More details about the MFWA can be found on our website www.mfwa.org.
The MFWA has been awarded a grant by the European Union for a three-year media sector support project in Guinea Bissau. The project is titled: Promoting Media Freedom and Access to Quality Information in Guinea Bissau and has an overall objective of ensuring that: Journalists and other media actors in Guinea Bissau are safe and secure, and produce ethically-appropriate, timely, and fact-based journalistic content that fosters peaceful co-existence and enables public access to quality information in an environmentally sustainable manner.
Under the project, the MFWA is carrying out a baseline study in Guinea Bissau to assess the human rights, media and freedom of expression situation; and the organisational capacity of media actors in the country.
The MFWA is, thus, looking for a Consultant with the requisite expertise to undertake the assignment. Read more about the call here.
