Media Foundation

About Us

Based in Kathmandu, Nepal, the Media Foundation is  an independent, not-for-profit education, research and policy initiative. It works to elevate the quality and standards of media in the country. Activities aim to promote media education, advance media research, strengthen professionalism, advocate public interest, and promote excellence in journalism and communications disciplines.

The seeds of the idea of a foundation devoted to media in Nepal germinated from a series of informal and formal discussions among a group of prominent media professionals and educators. Meetings were typically held in the co-initiators’ homes over cups of tea.

Established in 2009, the organization is registered with the authorities (Kathmandu District Office, and the Social Welfare Council, Government of Nepal).
