Sawab Project

In the rapidly advancing era of information technology and communication, news and data flow at an overwhelming speed, creating significant challenges in verifying their accuracy and credibility. Like many communities worldwide, Libyan society faces this challenge acutely due to the increasing spread of misinformation and fake news. To address this urgent need, the Sawab project was established as an effective response aimed at enhancing media literacy and empowering individuals to responsibly and critically handle information.



The Sawab project was founded in response to the growing challenges faced by Libyan communities in the digital information age. The project aims to equip citizens with the tools and knowledge necessary to distinguish between accurate and misleading information through a variety of educational programs and initiatives. These include educational workshops, digital awareness campaigns, and interactive platforms that facilitate discussion and experience exchange. At the heart of the Sawab project lies a deep commitment to enhancing media literacy and combating misinformation in Libya.


The Sawab project covers a wide range of activities and initiatives designed to promote media literacy in Libya. These activities include:

– Educational Workshops: Providing Training of Trainers (TOT) courses and workshops that aim to prepare NGOs to become trainers themselves. These workshops are designed to teach individuals how to critically evaluate information and are intended to spread awareness on a national level by enabling NGOs to conduct their own workshops across Libya.

– Awareness Campaigns: Launching campaigns on social media and digital platforms to raise awareness about the dangers of misinformation and the importance of source verification.

– Interactive Platforms: Developing interactive platforms that allow individuals to engage in discussions and share experiences on how to handle news and information.

– Media Skills Enhancement: Offering resources and tools to help individuals develop their skills in fact-checking and information analysis.

Through these activities, the Sawab project aims to create a more informed and responsible media environment capable of addressing misinformation and fostering constructive dialogue in Libyan society.
