Citizen Journalism

We are registered as a news agency in Zimbabwe and Malawi - and in 2012 we established a long-term citizen journalism project. Our aim is to engage, educate and train ordinary citizens on how to write, report and publish stories from their own communities in compelling ways.

The project's goals are to:
  • Expand the media landscape by introducing a robust alternative media;
  • To develop a culture of sharing information and of dialogue;
  • To increase consumption of media, and
  • To create a platform on which similar projects can be executed in different territories.
Sadly, for successfully giving people a voice, this project was interrupted by a police raid on our partner's local offices.

Examples of our citizen-based video news bulletins are available on this Youtube channel.
