Our Africa Initiative currently spans East and West Africa, providing formal training and learning resources to 60 newsrooms. Starting with Kenya, Nigeria, Rwanda and Uganda, this three-year initiative is building a network of solutions journalism-focused fellows, trainers and media entrepreneurs across the continent.

Through our partners Nigeria Health Watch and Science Africa, we work with newsrooms at the community and national level to support reporting that prioritizes the multilingual, multicultural and multimedia needs of diverse African audiences.
