UMOJA

An encrypted p2p media network

UMOJA is an encrypted p2p media network. We hope to help establish insights and progressive discussions surrounding current and future global causes and crises. Our system allows anyone to read, create and share content they care about. News is either user-generated through UMOJA or sourced by live RSS feeds from other trusted organisations and news networks. We have integrated multiple features such as an advanced user and content rating system, tagged site-wide questioning and crowdfunding abilities, making our content much more dynamic and updatable. We want to create communities around news reports rather than leaving them to become 'dead stories' as most online and static news becomes a few days after publication. We hope to provide a non-biased platform that can aid journalists, charities and individuals' consumption, understanding and reporting of current affairs.
