Africa Media NGOs stakeholders' conference Lagos 2021The pandemic continues to shape our world in different spaces. Many organizations are stranded without knowing which direction to go. In the midst of all these, social impacts must be sustained to keep our world safe.

Africa?s non-profit cannot afford to be silent in the scheme of things. Media industry and all its related organizations: media institutions, Media career development, media advocacy and many other must continue to deliver their values for the society to remain sane.

Africa Media NGOs have myriads of problems ranging from human resources, financial resources and infrastructure. To excel, there may be a need for idea sharing, networking, collaborations, networking as working in isolation today will create more challenges.
