Tanzania Media Foundation (TMF) in collaboration with the Editors’ Forum and Media Owners Association of Tanzania would like to invite media owners, editors, senior and veteran journalists as well as independent producers based in Dar es Salaam to an outreach meeting, to take place on 25 February 2016. The meeting include special audience with the Minister of Information, Youth, Culture and Sports, Nape Nauye and Irish Ambassador to Tanzania, Fionnuala Gilsenan.

TMF emerged out of the successful implementation of the Tanzania Media Fund project from June 2008 until September 2015. It formally began operations in October 2015. TMF stands for a strong and independent media sector promoting accountability. Its mission is to transform the media, through grants and learning, into an independent and sustainable sector that reports responsibly on issues of public concern. We are committed to transparency and impartiality, creativity and innovation, quality, reflection and learning, in a spirit of results-oriented and engaged teamwork.

TMF is currently implementing its 2015-2018 strategic plan, Strengthening Media for Accountability, towards three basic objectives. The first two are concerned with increasing the professional capacity of media organisations and stakeholders while also increasing the quality, quantity and diversity of investigative and public interest journalism products in the media sector. The third objective is focused on ensuring the organisation’s growth and sustainability.

Outreach objectives

The overall objective of the meeting is for TMF, which is a new organisation, to network and introduce its vision, mission and services (grants and learning) to media owners, editors, senior and veteran journalists and independent producers based in or around the Dar es Salaam region. TMF expects that the meeting will also generate ideas on how it can work more effectively with this group of participants. Finally, during the meeting, TMF will also orient participants through its new web-based application system.
