Afri’Kibaaru call for applications

November 13, 2020

CFI is looking for 48 media outlets to improve the information available on sustainable development in the Sahel region.

The Afri’Kibaaru project provides the selected media outlets with opportunities to specialise in sustainable development issues. It enables people to better understand issues related to the climate, health, education, gender equality and, more broadly, the sustainable development goals.

Is your media outlet ready for this challenge? Respond to the Afri’Kibaaru call for applications!

Financed by AFD and implemented by France Médias Monde, in partnership with CFI, the project supports the production and dissemination of news related to sustainable development in several local languages, as well as the training of journalists to cover these issues. The training component of the project, which is implemented by CFI, aims to improve the skills of a wide network of African media outlets and journalists in the area of providing information and leading public debate on topics related to sustainable development. 

Who is the call for applications aimed at?

The editorial offices that CFI wishes to support are those belonging to media outlets in Burkina Faso, Chad, Mali, Mauritania, Niger and Senegal that provide national coverage or operate across one or more regions, and which are considering extending their editorial strategy in relation to sustainable development issues.

The eligible media outlets and countries are as follows:

  • Radio stations;
  • Television channels;
  • Online media outlets that integrate audiovisual modules into their editorial content.

Participating editorial offices must meet the following conditions:

  • The media must be produced in at least one African language;
  • The editorial team must be composed of at least five journalists;
  • One manager and two journalists must commit to taking part in the project activities (a command of the French language is required);
  • The management of the media outlet must give its approval.

We strongly encourage applications from female candidates.
