The Union Catholique Africaine de la Presse (UCAP) also known as the African Catholic Union of the Press, is an African Forum of Professionals and Institutions in Secular and Religious Journalism (Communication). It is an independent, autonomous and professional African Catholic entity composed of African Catholic communicators, academics, researchers and institutions in all classifications of media and communication. It is a non-political and non-profit association which exists to create platforms for the enhancement of professional skills and promotion of Christian (Catholic) and positive journalistic values. It is recognised by the Holy See.  

  • Our Objectives

  • To promote Christian values (peace, unity, fraternity, justice, probity, reconciliation etc)
  • To initiate opportunities for training and retraining of communication practitioners in line with global developments and the needs of the African continent.
  • To create an enabling platform for constructive professional networking and linkages among members of the Union, with particular regard to exchange of information and experiences, and media development.
  • To organize events (conferences, workshops and refresher programs) to encourage exchange of ideas and experiences, and to stimulate reflection, discussion and dialogue on matters of professional interest among communication practitioners on the continent.
  • To promote professionalism among communication practitioners as well as communication research and other educational activities that may contribute to knowledge in media and communication in Africa.
  • To promote communication as a means of empowerment, especially among minorities, in Africa.
