Capacity Building: new report on the impact of MLDI’s partner grants

Date: 
27 Nov 2018

"the changes  resulted exclusively because of MLDI ’s support and funding, since without that funding no organisation would be able to provide such services …. Other funders, at the moment, seem uninterested in media related projects in general, and media legal defence is never listed among priority areas in their calls for proposals. Therefore, we could say that without MLDI’s support, journalists and media would find themselves in far more precarious situation.”
