Media House Ningarhar

The support of media is crucial for development, peaceful transformation of conflict and building of a free- participatory open society.
For Mediothek Afghanistan it is therefore a main goal to develop the media in Afghanistan and in its neighboring regions.

Media development takes place under the umbrella of Media House Nawbahar. "Nawbahar" means springtime in the Afghan languages, Dari and Pashto. It symbolizes the beginning of a new season, a season of bringing peace, unlimited access to meaningful information, and democratic media. This new media house of the Mediothek Afghanistan opened up in 2008.

Mediothek Afghanistan builds professional capacities for journalists, publishes print magazines in Dari and Pashto, produces radio and TV programs, publishes books, facilitates a professional network of journalists, and provides access to information in its community centers, media houses, libraries and internet cafes.
