Kibera Film School embraces Citizen Journalism

Kibera Film School added another feather to it's cap as two people were selected for an intensive citizen journalism workshop at PAWA254
Noreen Kombo(Trainee at Kibera Film School) and Joash Mageto (Trainer) were selected for the three day Journalism workshop which was facilitated by Mr Roy Gichuhi an experienced Journalist in the Kenyan Media.
Mr.Gichuhi taught on the code of conduct for the practice of Journalism in Kenya,the new constitution in relation to Kenyan Media laws and professional writing.

The event was graced by Jackie Lebo,a Filmmaker,writer and photographer who showcased Gun to Tape- a documentary based on the pre-Olympic training activities of Kenyan athletes.As the Producer of the documentary she explained to us the challenges involved in making of the documentary and promised to visit us at Kibera Film School soon for a possible screening.
The Media Council of Kenya was also at hand to provide additional information for upcoming Journalists.

We are now  working on our second project under Kibera TV and the workshop could not have come at a better time.
