Opportunity for Journalists, Writers and Photographers: Call for Citizen Journalists – Sauti ya Mtaa by Sept. 5 2014
An exciting new project dubbed Sauti ya Mtaa is calling on enthusiastic writers, journalists and photo or video journalists to express their interest by applying to be a member.
Sauti ya Mtaa is a project hosted at PAWA254, and funded by Making All Voices Count (MAVC), meant to highlight the fascinating stories about Nairobi’s slums and its neighborhoods which do not always get covered in the media.
Through this project, a strong network of citizen journalists will be built around Nairobi’s slums, with two different hubs located in Kibera and Kariobangi where journalists will have a free space to network and file their stories.
The project will also include training’s on journalism and a web platform where the citizen journalists will submit their stories and be remunerated.
Potential citizen journalists include journalists, writers and photographers.
How to Participate in this Project
Interested citizen journalists across the city should submit their curriculum vitas, cover letter and samples of written work for consideration.
