In 2012, Ma'an Network committed to establishing a 24-hour online news website in Egypt, Tunisia and Libya, in an effort to encourage free speech and create a thriving and active civil society across the Middle East region. Ma'an Network intends to make large-scale impact with this effort and aims for each country website to reach 60% of Internet users within four years. The websites will offer audiences professional and reliable media reports in Arabic and English. Based on its existing network of media professionals in each country, Ma'an Network will select journalists exemplifying the passion and skills to operate as professional journalists committed to reporting the truth without influence from political, commercial or personal pressures or interests. Further, a business strategy will be customized for each country that maximizes revenue generation from advertising and other commercial opportunities.
