Women's Reporting Collective

The aim of this project by IWPR in The Hague and in Goma is to strengthen the capacity of women journalists in eastern Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) through the development of the Women's Reporting Collective. The project will provide a locally owned and managed online publishing platform for multimedia human rights reporting, continued professional media capacity building, and increased networking and information exchange opportunities with key civil society organizations. The project will serve as a catalyst to strengthen the voices of women in eastern DRC, enhancing reporting standards among women journalists and raising awareness of critical human rights issues among local, regional and international audiences.

Project staff: Melanie Gouby, Multimedia production coordinator; Guelord Mbaenda, DRC Field Coordinator; Simon Jennings, Editor; Olivier Nyirubugara' Senior trainer in video production, Voices of Africa Media Foundation.
