Media-K project

In partnership with FHI360, Internews will be implementing the media- assistance project that is supported by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID).

  • Award grants to produce high quality digital content and innovative formats that respond to audience demand and increase access to diverse and balanced information

  • Award fellowships on data journalism
