The Wole Soyinka Centre for Investigative Journalism, WSCIJ, is seeking entries from Nigerian journalists in the print, broadcast and photography, for a training on reporting girls and women issue.
The investigative reporting training, which being organised in collaboration with the Embassy of Netherlands in Nigeria, will hold in three states of the country -Ekiti State, Cross River State and Abuja.
Applicants without relevant works but with demonstrated commitment and promise may be considered.
The training will focus on the major issues of access and abuse, ranging from education, health care, violence and early marriage among others.
It is also expected that the training will boost commitment to the respect for the girl child and the woman’s rights as human rights and build the media’s capacity to strategically report girls and women issues as well as mainstream girls and women into media reportage.
Shortlisted journalists will also have the opportunity to pitch for small grants to carry out investigative reporting work on report girl and women issues based on lessons garnered from the training experience.
