Our reporters under training are talented young Africans from communities that are underrepresented in mainstream media. They have the ambition to pursue a career in media but are limited by lack of work, financial resources and practical experience. During our practical training, trainees gain the necessary skills and work experience.
Upon successful completion of the training, the mobile reporters become Voices of Africa alumni. Our alumni network was initiated to foster continuous learning and to stimulate knowledge sharing as former trainees continue to work as freelance community reporters. As an alumni, reporters still own their free publishing space and are entitled to new updates of our training material. Voices of Africa Media Foundation tries to link alumni reporters to clients to promote sustainability of the training.
