Bangladesh has a vibrant media landscape with nearly 200 national newspapers and 30 TV stations, and the sector is growing rapidly. Together with our local partner MRDI, Fojo is working with the main media houses and the most skilled male andfemale journalists to improve investigative journalism in a five-year project initiated in 2016.

We believe that the journalists and editors themselves are the true experts who know how to make improvements, so the program is designed to meet the requirements from our partners and the activities are customized.

We provide support in the areas of media management, research and presentation techniques, safety and security and ethics in reporting, with a constant focus on achieving results through getting more and better investigative stories published in Bangladeshi media.
