Thus far, 55 TV and radio journalists from 24 stations in eleven African countries have been trained in financial reporting for TV, radio and online. As part of their training, the journalists have produced over two dozen TV and radio reports, as well as multimedia online dossiers on topics such as financial capability, access to finance, micro-insurance, and the informal financial sector.
To keep fostering high-quality financial reporting, MFW4A has established a pan-African Journalist Network that includes journalists who have undergone the MFW4A training. The Network is an integral part of the MFW4A website, which includes a special section dedicated to the Network’s reports coming from participating journalists who follow the MFW4A Journalist Guidelines. Further, our exchange platform allows partner stations to exchange news pieces with one another and, in doing so, to broaden their reporting portfolio.
