Dendezo Media Support

“Dendezo” means “freedom” in Kinyarwanda, the native language of Rwanda; a country destroyed through hate media, a country rebuilt with peace media.

Dendezo Media Support aims to strengthen projects in the area of Freedom of Expression and Access to Information.

Rieneke Van Santen initiated Dendezo to utilise her leadership experience, training and storytelling skills in order to help advance global independent media, press freedom and internet freedom projects across different sectors.



I also shot the portraits of Rieneke for her website:
