The Media Foundation for West Africa (MFWA), in collaboration with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), Ghana, is offering funding opportunity to Ghanaian journalists for the production and publication of stories on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
About 15 stories will be financially supported and the overall best story will be awarded an additional US$1000.
The initiative forms part of MFWA’s project: ‘Mainstreaming the SDGs in Development Reporting.’
The project seeks to increase the awareness and knowledge of journalists on the SDGs and promote their incorporation in development reporting for social change.
As part of the project, 30 selected journalists from across the country will participate in a 2-day training workshop on August 23 and 24, 2016.
The training is expected to enhance participant’s knowledge of the SDG’s and improve their capacity to produce professional stories promoting SDGs stories.
