Dear readers,

We are a Rwanda-based digital news platform dedicated to bringing out underreported social, political or economic issues and events in daily lives of communities in the country, region and the African continent.

In particular, we endeavor to give communities a voice and transmitting their needs or concerns through storytelling, thereby steering public attention and discussion on pertinent issues otherwise under-reported or under-analysed by the mainstream media.

We leverage existing tools and technologies to consistently tell compelling public interest stories of underrepresented topical issues so they get the attention they deserve.

We hope by doing so we position the ordinary people to take part in the decision making process and influence policy, thereby bringing about equity.

This platform equally serves you stories about everything you need to know about Rwanda, its cities and the region so you can get better connected and navigate with ease.

From latest happenings, current affairs, weather and traffic updates to guides on where to live, attractions and things to do in Kigali, secondary towns and remote parts of the land of a thousand hills, and the wider East Africa.

We pay a particular attention to people, projects and happenings driving change and making our neighborhoods a better place for all, including how to better tackle pressing environmental problems that threaten natural habitat and ecosystem services that make our places livable and attractive.

With us you can discern between facts and fiction especially when it comes to claims made in news, in public and on social media on matters that affect you, our esteemed reader, and the general public. Amid a sea of fake news, lies&hoaxes on/offline, we bring you the FACTS you need the most.
