Our Mission

Misinformation has become an ‘infodemic’ that is too big for any one organisation to solve. The flood of misleading toxic information is undermining our societies. We all need to protect the truth, by fighting back with facts. These awards are intended to celebrate the pioneering citizens and organisations across Africa, who are exposing false information in innovative ways.
