Why AFJC was created?

Freedom of media is one of the tremendous achievements of the post-Taliban government. However, this achievement has been undermined by ongoing war, an unfriendly environment for establishment of democracy and a prevailing culture of warlordism in many areas has threatened development of the media.
Such continuing threats alarmed some journalists and media freedom activists to raise and defend freedom of expression in Afghanistan, establishing the Afghanistan Journalists Center.
