The North Africa Foreign Correspondents’ Club (NAFCC) is an association of professional journalists. It was set up in 2014 under the Tunisian association’s law with an office based in Tunis.

NAFCC represents the professional interests of regionally based journalists working for international media in North Africa’s countries (Tunisia, Morocco, Algeria, Libya and Egypt).

NAFCC, also, ensures that its members fulfill their reporting duties freely and independently, defending a free media and protecting journalists.

As part of its activities, the Club, regularly, invites important guests and experts, in Tunisia for meetings to chat and exchange with its members.
