Citizen Jounalism Training

Creative Centre for Communication and Development is empowering women and girls to become citizen journalists, playing an active role in the process of collecting, reporting, analysing and disseminating news and information in order to provide independent, reliable, accurate, wide ranging and relevant information that a democratic Zimbabwe requires.

The overall objective of this empowerment training is to amplify voices of marginalised women and girls, uplift their lives, enlighten and enliven their community in general, enable them to earn respect while participating in issues that affect their lives.

It is expected  that women will be empowered with skills to practise citizen journalism and women will use ICTs to advance their communication rights and other fundamental freedoms. There will be a wide spread and rapid access to information by women and women will use ICTYs to amplify their voices, seek, receive and impart rights-based information.
