What We Do
AFEX is a network of some of the most influential freedom of expression organisations across Africa that work together to promote and improve the press freedom situation in Africa.
Through the collective engagement and commitment of its members, AFEX’s vision is to have “an Africa where all peoples are free to express themselves.”
Network Development – We are a continental and local network currently made up of 15 members. While some of our members work in only one country, others work in several countries in a particular region. To continuously improve its capacity and effectiveness to execute its mandate, AFEX members and other FOE organisations are taken through periodic capacity building and knowledge sharing workshops.
Advocacy – we continuously advocate for FOE and other human rights through the strategic publication of statements, petitions, reports and sustainable information sharing with the global community, encouraging wider dissemination of this information through all media platforms.
