Our Programs

Supporting investigative journalism in Sub-Saharan Africa

Our programs are designed to support and equip Journalists in Sub-Saharan Africa with the tools, resources and skills needed to practice investigative journalism in defense of the public interest and also expose abuses of power and betrayals of the public trust by government, business, and other institutions, using the moral force of investigative journalism to spur reform through the sustained spotlighting of wrongdoing.

Training & Capacity Building

We train and equip students, local journalists, a spiring investigative journalist and journalism educators across Sub-Saharan Africa with the needed skills and resources to help them cover what’s missing in today’s news. We’re working to bring Investigative journalism to every newsroom in the Sub-Saharan countries and through our mentorship and training program “Investigate 28” we aim to contribute towards the growth of Investigative journalism in the region. Depending on the country, we asses and develop a specific training plan which is engineered to increase the capacity and improve journalist’s investigative skills. With capacity training, we are able to run workshops that deal with specific form of journalism I.e. Open-source, Data and Undercover Journalism. These workshops can take place both on location and online.
