Thomson Reuters Foundation’s 2018 Africa Rising Reporting Workshop

Increasingly African business and social leaders are emphasising that the future of the continent lies in its own hands. But, are we adequately reporting this and giving sufficient media attention to the strengthening entrepreneurial and innovative spirit? While analysing the challenges facing development, this intensive 3-day course explores the opportunities being seized by businesses and individuals in Africa, as well as the costs and benefits of foreign investment.

The workshop aims to equip journalists with the skills necessary to cover the economic and business trends. Led by seasoned Reuters’ journalists with deep experience, the course will show you how to make the link between money and people; and where to find new stories and sources.

Applicants must be African (East Africa and Southern Africa) full-time journalists or regular contributors to broadcast media organisations in Africa.
Applicants must be able to demonstrate a commitment to a career in journalism in their country, must be a senior journalist with a minimum of three years’ professional experience and have a good level in spoken and written English.
If you have been on a Thomson Reuters Foundation training programme within the last two years you will not be eligible to apply.

Benefits:

Thomson Reuters Foundation can fund travel expenses and accommodation for participants travelling from outside Nairobi.
