Zongo Media is a project of the Media Literacy Development Foundation (MLDF), a non-profit organisation registered in 2023 to develop media and information literacy skills in young people from underserved communities of Ghana.
The Zongo Media project which started in 2019 to cover Accra Newtown, Nima, Pig Farm, Kotobabi and Maamobi seeks to harness the power of Zongo youth through media literacy and entrepreneurial skills to improve youth development and democratic inclusion.
Our youth-centred training and learning space called the Zongo Media Academy provides a framework for learners to access, analyze, evaluate, and create messages in various forms, including print, video, audio, and social media to build their capacities as media entrepreneurs, communicators and change agents.
Our mission is to build an understanding of the role of media in society, along with essential skills of inquiry, critical thinking, analysis, self-expression and creativity necessary for youth development and democratic inclusion.
The Zongo Media Academy is driven by experienced media professionals from the Zongo Media Network, a professional group created by the Zongo Media Foundation to offer experienced media professionals the opportunity to volunteer their professional skills and experience to the Zongo community.
