About us

Who we are

1Libya is a non-profit organization that was founded in March 2011, at the start of the Libyan revolution to assist in the liberation of the country by support for free media. During the transition phase, it has focused on media and civic education, areas that are essential to the development of a successful modern democratic state.

A number of projects have been developed and are being implemented within these areas, usually with the support of international organizations. Since its creation, 1Libya has evolved into one of the leading CSOs within the country, with a reputation for being professional and quality driven.

1Libya is an non-governmental organization with no political or religious affiliations. 1Libya’s team is a mix of young, well-educated men and women on the ground with support from a number of expat Libyans and non-Libyans abroad.

What we do

1Libya delivers civic education and builds the capacity of media, because these are essential to the development of Libya. From our office in Tripoli, we have trained media professionals, advocated increased women’s participation in politics and facilitated important debates about our society. We have supported journalists, radio managers, political researchers, photojournalists and many others whose work is crucial to a democratic, vibrant Libya.

Our projects are ongoing and constantly evolving, for further information on our projects click here.


Without our partner agencies and organizations, we would not have been able to have the impact that we did or develop and sustain the projects that we’ve provided. We have worked with a number of international organizations and have developed projects with various agencies which have seen a highly successful reception and feedback.
