New Knight International Fellows

June 22, 2010

New Knight International Fellows. I like this one:

Malawi: Using Mobile Technology to Reduce Poverty – Edem Djokotoe of Ghana will help journalists produce regular coverage of agriculture, microfinance, and rural education. He will set up a network of citizen journalists, who will use mobile technology to send reports from remote areas to leading independent news outlets. These stories will help spur better public policies to reduce poverty.

Djokotoe has worked as a journalism trainer in Zambia for more than two decades. He has written a column for The Postnewspaper since November 1995.

Aaaand this one:

Malaysia: Finding a Business Model for Robust Citizen Journalism – Ross Settles of the United States will create a profitable model for integrating a vibrant citizen journalism network into Malaysiakini.com, the country’s only source of independent news. He will develop a strategy for online news organizations to combine professional standards with the broader reach and civic engagement of citizen journalism.
