Kenya: Raising Development Awareness Through the Media
The lack of in-depth, well-researched, and effective reporting on development issues in Kenya is weakening the media’s capacity to have an impact on the country’s political processes. EJC’s Kenya programme seeks to raise awareness to this problem, offering workshops dedicated to developing practical solutions by promoting relevant, powerful, and effective journalistic storytelling.
