Suwar Magazine is an independent online Syrian media outlet founded in 2013. With EED’s support, they seek to instil roots for democratic change in Syria by highlighting the importance of women’s and youth participation in political processes on one hand, and promoting transparency and accountability on the other hand. The EED grant will allow them to produce reports on these topics, which will be shared on their website and social media and also to train young female journalists. Suwar Magazine has won two awards for investigative reports.
