"Sexual harassment is not a women’s issue but rather a human rights issue"Read more
The Peace and Election Program in Tanzania strives to strengthen the ability of traditional and non-traditional media to report accurate information on the elections and referendum to the public, and specifically the youth. Internews has conducted a study to assess the Tanzanian media landscape and is working to train and mentor journalists on election and post-election coverage and specifically election issues affecting women and conflict sensitive journalism, host roundtable discussions between media and electoral stakeholders and monitor traditional and new media throughout the electoral cycle.
Four journalists trained by Internews won first prize in this year’s Excellence in Journalism Awards Tanzania (EJAT).
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.
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.
How many Tanzanian students experience sexual harassment and what can they do about it? These key questions were among those addressed by delegates at a half-day conference in Dar es Salaam, hosted by Internews on May 3, 2019.
It is the dream of every journalist to put together a story that has impact on the public he or she serves. Herieth Rebman, a reporter with Country FM, was practicing her reporting skills after a hands-on Internews training, when her dream was fulfilled.
“This internship has given me a rare chance to better prepare as I step into the real media world,” says Evarist Mapesa,one of five young graduate journalists attending a three-month internship facilitated by Internews in Tanzania under the Boresha Habari project.
INTERNEWS Tanzania, through its BoreshaHabari programme, has donated journalistic devices worth 200m/- to 19 community radio stations.
