Hello, kindly apply for the Code for Africa (CfA) which is offering intensive fact-checking fellowships for journalists, newsroom managers and civil society (CSO) researchers in Kenya. Successful applicants will learn fact-checking techniques through hands-on mentorship and project-based learning.
The fellowships are offered in partnership with Deutsche Welle Akademie (DWA) and are open to both freelancers and full-time employees in media or watchdog CSOs in Kenya.
The fellows will be mentored by a team of international experts, supported by Kenyan-based fact-checking professionals. The programme is designed to include a combination of modular step-by-step lessons, alongside one-on-one peer mentoring.
Fellows will use their new skills and tools to produce real-world fact-checks or newsroom management assignments using CfA’s task-driven ‘learn-by-doing model.
Fellows will also be given the opportunity to launch new fact-checking projects for their organizations, with additional technical support from CfA’s team of editorial and technology experts.
The deadline to submit applications for this program is 18-Jul-21.
