impactAFRICA offers grants [Africa]

impactAFRICA is Africa’s largest fund for data-driven investigative storytelling which launches its second call for proposals today, seeking investigative story proposals by journalists in six Africa countries.

Africa journalists with good digital storytelling ideas that go beyond ordinary reporting to expose new or under-reported issues in Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria, South Africa, Tanzania and Zambia stand to win cash grants, technology support, and editorial mentoring on their projects.

This initiative is part of impactAFRICA, a $500,000 programme to provide support for pioneering African journalism that uses data or digital tools to tackle development issues, such as public healthcare, water, sanitation, the effects of air and water pollution on African communities, climate change, and other development issues as related to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG).

The deadline for the proposal is on the 14th of November 2016.
