Africa Check believes that facts matter – wherever you are, whatever you do. Poor information contributes to poor decision-making.
And whether you are an individual, a media house, a manufacturer, a for-profit business or a non-profit organisation you need to get your facts right to ensure you earn and keep the trust of your partners, readers and clients.
With rates that help us to cover our costs but are strictly competitive, Africa Check can help your organisation by: providing thorough research and clear analysis of the best available data; verifying information for you before you use it; and/or by training your staff in a wide range of fact-checking techniques.
Africa Check is internationally recognised as the leader on the continent in accurate, independent verification. By using our services, you help support our work – just as we can help you and your business or organisation through our training, research and analysis and our information services.
Our experienced researchers and data analysts can provide your team with training and workshops in all the key techniques of fact-checking, from sub-editing to research, data-analysis, and data-visualisation.
The training, crafted to your needs, is suitable for those working in research, media and communications – including working and student journalists, commissioning editors, media and community managers, and advertising and PR practitioners – and for non-profit organisations who need to expand their in-house or community communications skills.
Reliable research and analysis is the cornerstone of what Africa Check does.
Our research unit offers the information you need on topics that are relevant to you, from broad public policy to the specific fields of crime and justice, education, employment, energy, environmental impact, health risks and healthcare, housing, migration and roads and transportation.
Research is tailored to your specific requirements from short guides or factsheets to in-depth reports
Earning and keeping the trust of your readers or clients is vital for any organisation.
To do that, you need to be able to verify the information you provide to the public and to your clients before you publish it. But, as Africa Check knows, doing that is not always easy. The data can be hard to confirm and the calculations complex. And once are sure of what you want to say, you also need to find the best ways to present the data available if you are to communicate your message well.
To help you do this, Africa Check offers a range of information services from verification to data-presentation.
