RNW is an independent media organisation active in China and 17 countries in Sub-Saharan Africa, Latin America and the Arab world, where freedom of expression is severely restricted. RNW offers information unavailable in local media because of legislation or taboos


RNW Media is a media organisation for social change. In parts of the world where change is hard to achieve because freedom of speech is restricted, we use media to make lives better. We work with people aged 15 to 30. If you want to change society, young people are the ones who make a difference. But to shape a better future, they need information. So we help them get access to independent journalism and media. Our three core themes are democracy and good governance, sexual health and rights and international justice. This reflects the ideals of our home country the Netherlands, with its democratic tradition, open-minded attitude to sexuality and global standing as the home of the International Criminal Court.
