Posted on Aug 2, 2023 in Specialized Topics

Student journalists in Africa who are interested in reporting on gender-based violence can apply for training.

The Center for Journalism Innovation and Development (CJID), in partnership with the Nigerian Women Trust Fund (NWTF), is accepting applications for the Virtual Training on Gender-Based Violence Reporting. This capacity-building workshop aims to equip student journalists with sustainable approaches to reporting on gender-based violence and other social issues.

The training will focus on the ethics of reporting on gender-based violence, data inclusion, and existing legal frameworks that protect women and girls, as well as how to approach victims and survivors due to the sensitive nature of gender-based violence.

Participating journalists are eligible for mini-grants to spotlight instances of gender-based violence.  

The two-day training will be held Aug. 24 to 25.

The deadline is Aug. 15.
