Course on Rural Poverty Reporting

African journalists have a few days left to apply for a two-day course called Rural Poverty Reporting, to be held in Cape Town, South Africa from May 2 to May 4. The course will focus on the journalistic skills needed to cover rural areas, and to bring rural poverty issues into urban households.

Thomson Reuters Foundation, with funding and support from IFAD (the International Fund for Agricultural Development), offers full bursaries for journalists from the developing world and countries in political transition. The deadline to apply is April 15, 2011.
