Centre for Media Freedom (CMF) is an organisation fully devoted for uplift of media sector in Nepal. Its aim is to extend media outreach from grassroots to the policymaking level. Freedom of expression, the cornerstone of democracy, can foster only when the media–through different outlets–is allowed to professionally unleash its vast potentials without any let or hindrance.
Founded in 2015 by a group of media personalities, CMF intends to inspire the work-force in this sector so that it identifies innovative ways to fulfil its own responsibilities. It desires to help stakeholders to first enhance cooperation among themselves. Through constant and consistent lobbying and advocacy, CMF also plans to pave a way to make technologically advanced media services easily accessible to a wider segment of the population. Side by side, our modest endeavour is expected to offer a leadership role in the field: through media-related events as well as forward-looking research reports.
Guided by its mission and vision, CMF has already been carrying out various activities at regional and national level and will continue its efforts to work with stakeholders for freedom of media, smooth governance, accountability of the public sector, inclusive democracy and human rights. The organisation commits to offer its expertise and engage its efforts and resources to translate its vision into reality with collaboration of various national and international governmental and non-governmental organizations. We are open, flexible and ready to join hands with our partners and funding agencies for achieving our vision and mission.
