The Minority Africa Fellowship, a project by Minority Africa, a digital publication using data-driven multimedia journalism to tell African minority stories — targets journalists and storytellers from minority groups across Africa providing them with the platform, skill, and mentorship to report stories from and about their communities.
Through an intensive six-month paid program, fellows will polish their existing reporting abilities both from a skill and thematic perspective but will also be trained on the intersecting areas and groups of focus for the fellowship. This means that fellows are taught and leave the fellowship knowing how to cover groups outside of the immediate communities they belong to.
These groups include women, sexual, gender, ethnic, and religious minorities, persons with disabilities, migrants, asylum seekers, as well as refugees. We nonetheless acknowledge that all minorities across the continent do not fall under these broad categories and also focus on groups that exist outside of these general definitions.
