In 2001 Media Focus on Africa (MFA) MFA was established in The Netherlands. In 2006 the Kenyan organization was put in place as a not for profit company under the leadership of one of its founders, Mr. Frank Klein as Chief Executive Director. In 2009 the board decided to overhaul this structure, not only with the objective of improving its internal governance and accountability matching the required international standards for not for-profit organizations, but also to tailor its ambitions to regionalize its activities in East Africa and/or beyond. In September 2009 MFA established Media Focus International, an international foundation, directed by a Board of Directors. Media Focus International has three country offices, one in Kenya, one in Uganda and one in The Netherlands. MFA Netherlands however does not run any projects but assists MFA Kenya and MFA Uganda in fundraising and managing ongoing projects in the two countries.

In December 2010 Mr. Frank Klein sadly passed on after a battle with cancer. MFA has since been under the leadership of various people including Mburugu Gikunda, Charles Otieno Hongo, Linda De Kooning, Laurence Caron and currently Paul Van Leeuwen being in charge of The Netherlands, Harrison Manga in charge of Kenya and Jan Ajwang in Charge of Uganda.

As a media house (radio stations too), acquiring a website gives you a lot of credibility and will boost your brand awareness and reputation. It rounds out your brand, taking media to the next level, an established brand, delivering value to its loyal audience https://t.co/fEbIzolepQ MFAUganda photo

What have you done to ensure your child is safe while they are exposed to media gadgets or even their presence on social media?

Has the media really done its part in ensuring inclusion of #PeopleWithDisability especially regarding their integration in all aspects of the society? Be it political, social, economic and cultural activities. Are they fully covered?

What do you see when you turn on your TV or radio, open a newspaper or your social media timeline? Do the images, narratives and messages convey your voice? How are you represented among the people who shape this media content?

Research shows that from a young age, children are influenced by the gendered stereotypes that the media presents to them! What and how can the media ensure gender equality without misrepresentation?
