Safer media ecosystems

Safe and inclusive media ecosystems

Digital conversations inevitably impact our offline realities. We launch targeted calls to address timely issues, such as human rights documentation and violence against women and gender-diverse communities.

“Check enabled us to detect viral posts and emerging controversies around the French presidential election and the candidates' campaigns, while improving our relations with our readers.”

Regions

Where we work

Our inclusive network of collaborators spans North Africa and Western Asia, Latin America and the Caribbean, sub-Saharan Africa, the Asia-Pacific region, Europe and the United States.

World Map

A unique focus on the Larger World

Meedan is at work in more than 40 countries across the Larger World. Our team has discussed at length how to describe the regions we work in. Terminology matters. We’ve settled on the phrase Larger World — a term coined by our friends at Numun Fund to describe areas of the world referred to elsewhere as the Global South.

Impact

Keeping track of our impact

Over the years, we’ve developed a number of case studies and program reports that describe, both quantitatively and qualitatively, our pathways to impact. You can download copies of these reports here.

Partners

Working together to magnify impact

We collaborate with a wide variety of partners from around the world to maximize the reach of our vision for a more equitable internet.
