DescriptionThe Organization is a London-based charity which provides legal help to journalists, citizen journalists, and independent media across the world. The Organization's vision is a world where journalists no longer face legal challenges that threaten their ability to report freely and independently on issues of public interest, allowing citizens to be better informed, and able to hold those in power to account. Grants are awarded to organizations with backgrounds in defending and supporting the right to freedom of expression. Grants can be used to set up a media legal defence centre to provide pro bono legal support to citizen journalists and independent media. Grants can also be used to coordinate networks of lawyers to do the same. Funds may not be applied for strategic litigation. The grant is open to nongovernmental organizations and law centres registered in Sub-Saharan Africa. Visit the Web site to learn more and for application information.
