Your life, your community and your stories are no less valuable because you live in a remote, rural area. Mainstream media may not see you there, off the edge of the media distribution routes, but that does not mean you don’t matter.
Food For Mzansi Sinelizwi (‘We have the word‘) is training 62 ordinary South Africans to be local community journalists. Through a six month long, Whatsapp-based programme, we will empower people from overlooked rural communities to find and tell stories from their own communities. We’ll amplify these stories through our national online platform.
