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.
In an increasingly interconnected 21st century society, imparting digital skills on youth becomes a critical skill.
