Expression of Interest.

The AKU GSMC Media Innovation Centre, together with its partners DW Akademie and Media Challenge Initiative (MCI) are looking for the brightest media minds from Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania to join our 2021-2022 Innovators-in-Residence program, a 12-month incubation and accelerator program that provides mentorship, training and coaching to media innovators in East Africa. We want to ensure innovators from both rural and urban areas get access to this program and for this reason, this yearā€™s cohort will include aĀ special track for rural innovators.

We want to supportĀ innovators working on ideas that promote journalismĀ in rural communitiesĀ in Tanzania, Uganda and Kenya. Specifically, we are looking for media solutions that improve access to information, public dialogue and participation for rural communities considering the great linguistic diversity, potentially low connectivity, limited access to professional news media and low literacy rates. Innovators working outside cities such as Nairobi, Dar es Salaam and Kampala are highly encouraged to apply.

Urban-based innovators are also highly encouraged to applyĀ as we also have slots for them. Click on the document for more details.
