Where We Work

The Media Foundation for West Africa works to promote freedom of expression, press freedom, access to information, internet freedom and media development throughout the 16 countries in the West Africa region–that is the 15 member states of ECOWAS and Mauritania. In all the countries, we work through our national partner organisations; our in-country freedom of expression rights monitors; and members of our Network of Human Rights Lawyers who offer pro-bono legal services in defence of victims of free expression rights violations.
