Protect Journalists Under Threat in Afghanistan

Protect Journalists Under Threat in Afghanistan

Thank you for supporting Afghan journalists during this urgent time. In addition to helping their communities navigate Afghanistan’s challenging political, health, educational, food security and economic systems, journalists and media outlets are constantly at risk of facing political repercussions for fulfilling their mandate to freely provide information.

While the landscape for the media in Afghanistan is extremely challenging, there are still opportunities to maintain critical public information flows to citizens across the country. We continue to provide immediate, mid- and long-term support to partners directly providing critical information. For instance, we recently supported the dissemination of informative reports about COVID-19 nationwide through radio broadcasts and online platforms. We have also supported international advocacy efforts to protect journalists and media freedom, especially in urgent situations like in Afghanistan.

Our Afghan journalist and media partners’ safety and long-term sustainability continue to be at the heart of our efforts – and we couldn’t have done it without your commitment and support.

Thank you for your generous contribution to support Afghan journalists in this humanitarian crisis.

For decades, Internews worked alongside Afghan media entrepreneurs as they fostered a vibrant media sector that, at its height, employed thousands of women, reached every province large and small, and became one of the most trusted institutions in the country. Together with partners and friends like you, we have taken the steps to:

  • Support the asylum process for those at risk, through direct support and advocacy.
  • Support quality content production for media outlets under threat.
  • Counter mis/disinformation amongst communities whose channels to reliable, accurate information are compromised.
  • Provide digital security for vulnerable journalists in and outside of the country.
  • Track violations on journalists and other efforts to undermine the free press.
  • Improve media partners' organizational and technical capacity and long-term sustainability.

For twenty years, the Afghan media community has inspired us with their resilience and resolve to provide life-saving information to those in most need—no matter the challenge or cost. Our heartfelt thanks for your collective support and solidarity, as we continue to champion the sector now and into the future.
