Teaching Girls to be Citizen Journalists

GLOBALGIRL MEDIA puts girls at the center of the story, training a future generation of female citizen journalists.

Last summer, GlobalGirl Media trained 22 high-school-aged girls from underserved communities in South Africa to become participant digital video journalists for the 2010 FIFA World Cup. Working in Soweto, they produced over 50 blogs and videos.

After the conclusion of GGM’s highly successful trainings in Los Angeles and South Africa, GGM is taking part in the women’s media revolution in Morocco.

GGM has also introduced mobile journalism into its curriculum.
