MFA promotes the concept of communication for development (C4D) as a reciprocal process of dialogue and participation to bring about social change, through positive influences on people’s beliefs, attitudes and behaviour.

For MFA, Communication for Development is about building inclusive and just societies through providing people with a voice and to communicate their perspectives, hopes and fears back to society as a whole and to those in authority in particular.
