Msaada wa Kifedha

Bringing important stories to the world can come at great personal risk. As a result of their work, many freelance journalists have been injured, threatened, imprisoned, detained, forced into exile, or even killed. 

The Trust offers much-needed financial support to help freelancers get back on their feet and continue their crucial work.

Mfuko wa Mgogoro

The Crisis Fund provides grants to help with costs associated with an immediate crisis, either personal or in cases of force majeure, such as natural disasters or political and civil unrest.

Mfuko wa Tiba

In response to the psychological pressures that journalists are exposed to, the Therapy Fund covers the cost of treatment for those who would benefit from professional psychological support.
