Africa Agenda wants to take its mission further! In 2021 we have several programs planned, one of which is growing our sister site, Africa News Matters, a critical news analysis website.

We are seeking aspiring journalists, civil society professionals, and educators with a passion for social media, demonstrated interest and awareness of African affairs and US-Africa relations, love for tracking, monitoring the news for bias and responding with corrective action.

We are looking to post compelling content, and would like to find bloggers who are ideas driven, creative, and ready to roll up their sleeves and write. We are open to your ideas for stories, particularly on content related to energy, business, investment, trade, education, health, civil society/NGO related initiatives, women's issues, ICT and how the internet is affecting the development of Africa's economy.

Writers must show passion for a deeper insights and a flare to stand out. We require a minimum of one story a month for each contributor.

Editorial meetings will take place once a week and volunteers are requested to attend them. Meetings will be used for planning, storyboarding, checking-in, getting peer feedback, and developing a team atmosphere.

About Africa Agenda

Location:

1031 33rd St., Suite 174, Denver, CO 80205, US

Mission Statement

Africa Agenda is driven by the need to change the one-sided narrative of African News. We use the Africa Agenda website, journalistic tools, and events, including the Africa News Matters website, as platforms for critical engagement and news analysis about the African continent.

Description

Founded in 2004 by George Bamu, Africa Agenda is a small non-profit based in Denver that seeks to change the narrative of African news. The organization believes the one-sided pattern of journalistic reporting about Africa needs to be counterbalanced so every gets a full picture about the continent. Africa Agenda activities involve journalism and news training, an annual Africa summit in Denver, the celebration of World Press Freedom Day, a "Best in Africa Reporting Awards" as well as critical news analysis about the continent. Even with limited resources the organization has had many successes since 2004 such as working across the Denver metro area with hundreds of volunteers, many of the local universities, Africa-oriented networks, African leaders and organizations, and organized dozens of forums highlighting the beneficial activities by and issues of interest to the global African community. Africa Agenda wants to take its mission further. In 2019 Africa Agenda plans several programs which include a quarterly bloggers conference, the launch of a critical news analysis website, an Africa summit in Denver and student internships.
