The UNDP funds the first all-women media house in Somalia, the Somali Women Journalist Organization (SWJO). The SWJO is a year-long pilot expected to turn into a permanent set-up and extend into other regions. The organization is led by a team of six to produce content for TV, radio, and online media on issues like GBV, women in politics, and female entrepreneurs.
It aims to create opportunities for female journalists and grow awareness of issues like gender-based violence. It will also create a safe environment for women to produce inspiring stories published to the public. It is anticipated that this will transform the Somali media scan by highlighting several important women topics that have been ignored. Nasrin Mohamed Ibrahim, founding member, and editor-in-chief stated that she wants to cover these issues and challenge societal beliefs that women should stay at home.
