  1. The Forum of Journalists reporting on Corruption and Injustices (FOJCIR) is a Rwandan board of Journalists, working together to fight corruption and injustices. It is a one year old board, as it was created in June 2013, from the will to promote human rights, through the jointly work with the Government and Civil Society to fight corruption. It is made of journalists, media houses, journalists associations, and reporters, from whom the desire to make it was felt. For the time being, FOJCIR has 20 members as journalists, and works with 25 newspapers.
    In the main objective, the Forum will be an open space for all Rwanda media actors, to share forces, challenges and experiences to report on corruption and injustice. Therefore, FOJCIR helps its members to report on corruption, by supporting them legally, financially and technically. Thus it has to train them, equip them with skills and materials for their better work. It also facilitates sharing of experience with other media actors outside Rwanda.
    All possible social media will be used by journalists (members of the Forum) to perform professionally their work of investigating and reporting corruption.
