The Liberia Media for Democratic Initiatives (LMDI) was established in October 2011 and registered during the same period with the Liberian Government. Its mission is to achieve good governance and to promote peaceful co-existence through media-related programs and outreach. LMDI regards building the post-conflict fragile peace and the development of the media in Liberia as key to sustaining Liberia’s emerging democracy.
LMDI is a revision of the vision of the Liberia Media Initiative founded in 2007 by John O. Kollie, Founder and Director.
LMDI aims to achieve participatory democracy, and by extension its sustenance, through media sensitization, media empowerment, training and workshops for media practitioners, outreach on peacebuilding and national reconciliation, and awareness on key development issues, pillars, and governance.
LMDI is working towards an overall goal of achieving democratic governance through people’s inclusion to consolidate peace in Liberia. The LMDI at the moment runs five active radio and Community outreach programs all based on themes around democracy, governance, peacebuilding, and development.
