Who are we?

Welcome to FacTree, a digital media literacy initiative undertaken by Fact Crescendo – a leading fact-checking organization operating in seven countries and publishing fact-checks in over 15 languages. 

Recognizing the increasing challenges posed by misinformation and the need to promote digital media literacy, Fact Crescendo launched FacTree in 2022. 

The core idea of FacTree is centered on the idea of being rooted in facts, while continuously growing with knowledge. Hence, our tagline – Rooted in Facts, Growing with Knowledge.

With the vast amount of information available at our fingertips, it is crucial to be able to distinguish between what is true and what is false. By developing media literacy skills, people can become better equipped to navigate the complexities of the digital landscape, make informed decisions, and protect themselves against online threats.

We are dedicated to providing accurate and reliable information to help people stay informed and aware of the potential risks associated with online content.

We hope that our initiative will inspire you to become an active participant in the fight against misinformation and that you will join us in our mission to promote digital media literacy.
