ADH offers community journalism fellowship




AFRICAN Data Hub (ADH), in partnership with Orodata Science, is inviting applications for its Community Journalism Fellowship Program (CJFP).  

The CJFP initiative aims at improving the coverage of underreported issues in local communities across Nigeria. 

Interested candidates must submit story pitches. 

The programme will prioritize stories deep-diving into community health challenges, causes of hunger and extreme poverty, and, more importantly, stories showing structural barriers that women and girls face.  

Journalists based in Nigeria can apply for a fellowship and be eligible for grants.

Fellows will participate in a Data Journalism Bootcamp that will provide capacity-building training on advanced investigative, data storytelling and mapping techniques. 

Journalists will also learn how to source, analyse and visualise data in engaging and compelling ways. 

Community journalism holds the key to bridging the wide gap between Nigeria’s urban and rural areas with news, information, education and development.

As most of the issues are underreported by the mainstream media, community journalists often turn the spotlight on them.
