Democratization of Knowledge

A Solid Foudation

"The [Knight Center] course gave us a solid foundation to start our own project and build our portfolios, and today we make podcasts professionally for nationally-known news organizations... Thank you, Knight Center, for ongoing professional training that has truly broadened my skills and improved my career".

Kristy Totten, San Diego, CA (USA)

Invaluable Skills

"The lessons learnt from a data course I did helped us launch a data desk at our local newsroom at The Citizen. Earlier on, the newsroom management course helped me navigate the challenges when I was promoted from reporter to special projects editor. Skills learnt were invaluable".

Tom Mosoba, Tanzani
Business development manager, Mwananchi Communications Limited

Access to Better Journalism

Fernando Zamith, Portugal
Professor, University of Porto

Protecting Journalists
