Fojo Media Institute has a long-standing partnership with the Global Investigative Journalism Network (GIJN) in two major programmes: the Consortium for Human Rights and Media Development (CHARM) programme in Sub-Saharan Africa and the Improving Quality Journalism (IQJB) programme in Bangladesh.

CHARM Programme
