We are convinced that greater solidarity will also come from a better understanding of the world’s biggest challenges.

Yet, development, and philanthropy sectors remain opaque, often based on archaic models and therefore unattractive for new generations of change-makers.

Fake news and media sensationalism also play a major role in exacerbating this lack of transparency, restricting our access to enlightened information on issues as important as education, gender equality and many others.

More importantly, this information crisis forces us to constantly focus on what is going wrong in the world. It is preventing us from seeing the global picture, including all the positive initiatives and solutions imagined by people working everyday to tackle these big issues. And yet, they exist and we should hear more about them.

That is why we have created Azickia: a new international development and solidarity actor, more open and more positive, situated at the crossroads of philanthropy and the concept of solutions journalism.
