Be Innovative. Be Responsible. Be Iconic. | Effective Self-Regulation in a Privacy-First World
The Congolese Ministry of Health organized a hackathon to link digital technology with the fight against the Ebola epidemic that has been ravaging the eastern region of the country since August 2018
When Peter Mtoi and Neema Mziray, both young journalists working for the Voice of Africa (VOA) community radio station in Korogwe, Tanzania, set out to report the challenges facing the town’s residents they were worried about how their stories would be received by the local authorities.
The hackathon focused on social media, especially Facebook with emphasis on effective Facebook management, moderation, using Facebook for professional journalism and how to build and increase Facebook audience.
In this highly competitive era of technology, radio stations must be well equipped to be able to provide timely and accurate information and become a platform for rural communities to communicate with authorities.
