Jeunes Journalistes Sans Frontières is an organization which brings together several refugee journalists of different nationalities. As it is difficult for refugee journalists to find jobs in host countries they are displaced to, especially because of language barriers that restrict refugees from obtaining journalist jobs, the idea of creating an organization to help bring young journalists together took shape. A group of refugee journalists started to meet and exchange information in their own languages, and one refugee became responsible for posting on Facebook or Twitter in English or French all of the information that was exchanged between the group. The Facebook and Twitter pages have grown to become a key source of information that is easily accessible for refugees in Uganda. 

In addition to the Facebook and Twitter pages, the organization has initiated and supported the creation of this website. Journalists from Jeunes Journalistes Sans Frontières share information on this website. Among the organization's projects include their collaboration and support in the creation of this website for fact-checked information by refugee journalists. The ultimate goal however, is to create the first community radio for and by refugees living in Uganda.
