1. About CFI and the QARIB program:
A subsidiary of the France Médias Monde group, CFI, the French media cooperation agency, supported by the French Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs, is in charge of the coordination and implementation of public aid policy to promote and enhance media in developing countries.

The QARIB program aims to help the media and citizens reconnect with each other, and is structured around five key components:
promoting the production of journalistic content that is close to citizens’ concerns (environment, health, education, justice, gender equality, economy, etc.)
