2009

In our second year we continued to establish ourselves as an organisation, and supported a small number of cases and partners in Sub-Saharan Africa, Europe and South-East Asia. These included a number of grants supporting Omoyele Sowore, the founder of Sahara Reporters. The outlet is based in the United States of America but reports on Nigerian news and current affairs. In one case Sowore faced a $25 million defamation suit in the United States following Sahara Reporters’ articles on corruption. You can read more about Sahara Reporters here.

 

Number of new cases supported: 12
