The trained StoryMakers in Burundi provide local news and information from their communities. On this site you will find their stories.

Burundi

In Burundi, recent events have restricted the access to diverse sources of information. In this limiting environment, journalists, bloggers, human rights defenders and activists seek all kinds of ways to provide news and have their productions and reports aired or broadcast. StoryMaker creates a new possibility to make alternative voices be heard. The trained StoryMakers in Burundi can fill the information vacuum and provide local news and updates from their communities. On this page you will find a show case of their stories.

For more stories created in Burundi, check out the story page.

 

Deutsche Welle Akademie and Free Press Unlimited have collaborated in the adaptation, translation and introduction of StoryMaker to the regional context since 2014 and provide additional training in using the app.
