Thomas Reuters Foundation is looking for inspirational stories from talented young Africans who are ready to become advocacy champions for global development issues.

Program Details

The course has been developed by communications and media experts at Thomson Reuters Foundation and will aim to enhance the profile of 12 African story-tellers.

The training comprises communication techniques, public speaking and presentation skills, effective use of social media, handling the media, and more.

Once the training is complete, participants will be paired with a mentor to help build on what they have learnt in training, offer advice on media related issues and work on individual areas of development.

They will then be given the opportunity to share their stories in a global arena.

Generation Africa aims to help young Africans whose personal experiences have shaped their determination to help others facing challenges across the continent to tell their stories globally.

If you have a remarkable story, they would love to help you share it.

This is the first of three annual cohorts. Applicants must be available to attend a six-day training programme in early May 2019.
