Upcoming Community Reporters

 A pool of community journalists is in the making at the ng'arua Maarifa center. The center is located in Sipili location in Laikipia County of Kenya. A total of ten trainees, three men and seven ladies are participating in the training.
 The training which started in march 2011, is expected to continue for the next two months.
 The subject matter for the training is concentrated on the issues of online journalism, where the internet plays central role in dissemination of information. So far all the ten trainees have learned how to use social networks and web 2.0 tools like face-book, twitter, blog, picasa etc, for information access and dissemination.
 Social networking sites allows collaboration and participation of members. Thus making it an ideal forum for the community journalist to express their voices and bridge the digital divide between the urbanites and the rural dwellers.

What a nice introduction where it seems as if it is just the full study. Now I know the whole idea and have my own email. Camera techniques all in my hands and can handle any now. I have enjoyed the start and the rest seems to be of great benefit.
