    This description of Raed Othman's work was prepared when Raed Othman was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2011.
    Raed Othman is creating the first non-profit news media network in the Levant that strengthens civil society through monitoring governmental institutions, localizing ownership of the news, and facilitating informed public debates around human rights, gender equality, and public policy. By using his own work as a model for transparency and ethics, Raed is enabling both the news media sector and civil society to hold the government more accountable.
