Funding the First Media Project
July 11, 2013

The Sameera Gokal Foundation has funded its first media project in Kenya, helping students at the East African Media Institute to turn their visions into stories by producing Kenya Journal, an online news magazine program which will broadcast on a YouTube channel. This project will offer students a chance to translate their journalism knowledge and skills into a product that will add to the body of journalism worldwide.

Many of these young journalists are unable to get funds to bring their stories to life. Normally, they cannot afford to rent equipment, they have no access to editing facilities, they are unable to connect to knowledge resources and they lack a platform to showcase their work. The Sameera Gokal Foundation just made it happen! With the new equipment and technology, students will now be able to tell their own stories through their camera lens.
