Local Media Support
Development of free and independent media in Central Asia is critical to the future development of the region - without it, regimes have the ability to do as they wish - with no local knowledge of the extent of their manipulation.  Mulberry Media has been working with international partners since 1999 on the following projects to support the  development of a sustainable local media:  

 

Nasha Versia - 'Our Version' - Youth webzine
