The Media Freedom Committee in Uganda is providing grants to fund reporting projects focusing on solutions that address the press freedom challenges in Uganda.

Press freedom is something that all journalists in any country should enjoy in order to do their work comfortably. However, many reporters, including in Uganda, find themselves working under difficult conditions. From stringent laws to harsh environments, reporters have to navigate different kinds of hurdles in order to have important stories published.

An environment where press freedom thrives enables the media to do thorough investigative pieces, to hold those in authority accountable, and to provide important information to the citizenry.

The Media Freedom Committee Grants on Reporting on Press Freedom aim to help journalists report stories that:

  • Showcase solutions that address press freedom challenges
  • Make use of multimedia formats in reporting
  • Create an impact in the communities
  • Share information previously little known or unknown
  • Content should be produced in English and stories that are multimedia in nature are highly encouraged
