About Media Focus on Africa

Media Focus on Africa (MFA) is a not for profit organization founded in 2006. It represents a long-standing and unique International, African and East African knowledge base and expertise of the media industry and the political environment in which it operates.

Since 2006 MFA has in close collaboration with CSO / CBO organizations and the media implemented some ground-breaking multi media campaigns on leadership and good governance; free and fair elections and peace building and reconciliation among others.

The campaigns use different media platforms such as internet, SMS, social media, radio, television and mobile cinema screenings and different formats like talk shows, documentaries, drama series and lately reality TV, to reach out to specific audiences. MFA media programs are complimented with training and outreach activities at the national and local level to make active participants of our audiences.

Our mission is to stimulate social change and development in Africa through the media
