Our journalists, reporters are trained to be honest and courageous in gathering reporting, and interpreting information to Africa and the global public
Here Journalists/Reporters should: Take responsibility for the accuracy of their work. All information is verified information before publishing.

We are very cautious when publishing stories or articles that make promises, we work to see that such promises are kept or fulfill in case of political promises
In a case when a politician makes some promises and later fulfill these promises, we write and quotes them with relatives articles, but in a situation where they fail, we also make updates informing the public
We make and identify sources that the public is entitled to know and have as much information as possible, so they can judge the reliability, accuracy, and motivations of sources
Before putting any information on our platform we do consider sources’ motives before publishing, even in a case of promising anonymity
We keep anonymity for all sources, to whom may face retribution, danger, treat or other harm, and have information that cannot be obtained elsewhere, we do our best to keep the Anonyme
We explain why anonymity was granted, diligently seek subjects of news coverages, reporting, and publication to allow them to respond to criticism or allegations of wrongdoing.
And also to avoid undercover or other surreptitious methods of gathering information unless traditional, open methods will not yield information vital to the public
We trained our journalists, reporters to be very vigilant and courageous about holding those with power accountable and even going as far as getting information from them.
We give voice to the voiceless, we work in making Africa greater and make our platform open for Businesses across all Africa nations with the availability of our Business Directory, eLearning, and classified portal more African has a platform called AfriNOTES where they can use to promote their business, start-up, and ideation for free

We make access to sources material when it is needed, we make it open and accessible to the public, we keep public records open to all, as well provide access to sources materials when it is relevant and appropriate as well.
We boldly tell the story of diversity, we tell stories about Africa, stories about Africa culture and medicine, we also write on who is across Africa, where is and what is
Our How-to articles are doing well and serve as educational marketing content to our readership, and the magnitude of the human experience.
We seek sources whose voices we seldom hear and avoid stereotyping. We are on practice that all journalists and media reporting should examine the ways their values, tell stories to the public as experiences may shape their reporting, and label advocacy and commentary
Never deliberately distort facts or context, including visual and field base information. Label illustrations are re-enactments, never plagiarize. Always attribute
