Independent journalism needs independent funding

We want to enlighten. We are an independent journalism research center in Zambia, which is ad-free and non-profit. 

To our understanding, the core of journalism is to uncover abuses. That is why we are investigating corruption in the health and education sectors, the abuse of power by politicians, the growing social inequalities, and leaders who believe that rules are only applicable to others.

In order for us to work, we need people to support us. Through individual and institutional contributions, you become a member of the research team and thus support the work of investigative journalists at Makanday.

We are convinced that without independent and critical media the democracy that our forefathers won cannot survive in the long run.
