Deadline: October 25, 2019.
Internews Earth Journalism Network’s project on Wildlife and Conservation journalism is looking for a subgrantee to co-run its activities in a selected East African country.
Internews is an international media development organization headquartered in Washington DC, United States, with a regional office in Nairobi, Kenya. For more than 35 years, in more than 100 countries, Internews has worked to build healthy media and information environments where they are most needed. We have incubated hundreds of sustainable media organizations, bolstered the skills of thousands of media professionals and citizens, and helped them reach millions of people with quality, local information.
With joint funding from the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) and the U.S. Department of Interior (DOI), Internews’ Earth Journalism Network is running a two-year project to improve media coverage of wildlife and conservation issues in East Africa.
1. They are seeking proposals for creative and effective ways to empower East African journalists to tell wildlife and conservations stories, investigate wildlife crime and highlight community and technological interventions that have proved to help solve these pressing problems.
2. The proposed activities should include, but not be limited to: capacity building, such as knowledge sharing, network development, training to enhance journalism skills or data reporting tools; issuing travel/reporting grants to journalists; and holding media roundtables/workshops.
3. The proposal must also have a strong component on digital media and solutions-based journalism.
The grant will cover activities over the course of one year for a maximum of US$10,000.
