Meedan builds digital tools for global journalism and translation. The Check project has worked to build online tools, support independent journalists, and develop media literacy training resources that aim to improve the investigative quality of citizen journalism and help limit the rapid spread of rumors and misinformation online.

VFRAME is proud to have been supported with a three-year grant (2019-2021) by Check Global. With this grant, we have developed tools to integrate computer vision in to Check's infrastructure, allowing computer vision to be deployed in the effort to verify breaking news.
