Call for applications for “Desinfox Chad”: contribute to reliable, objective and independent information in Chad
Are you a media outlet (online press, radio or television) with a desire to fight misinformation and learn fact-checking techniques? Respond to our call for applications.
Chad has not been spared from the global phenomenon of misinformation, which is being spread there in all its forms, including falsehoods, defamation, misattributed quotes and photos taken out of context.
The Desinfox Chad project aims to spend two years strengthening the skills of six written press, online or audio-visual media outlets in Chad to combat information tampering by helping them to develop an editorial fact-checking concept.
The skill building programme will run from October 2022 to December 2023, in-person in N’Djamena, and will comprise training sessions on the fundamentals of information verification, basic fact-checking techniques, the fact-checking narrative and social media ownership.
Deadline for receiving application files: Monday, 24 July 2022 (18:00 UT)
