African Data Hub (ADH) is commencing its Community Journalism Fellowship Programme. This initiative aims to improve the coverage of under-reported issues in local communities across Nigeria, paying special attention to potential solutions with lasting impact on effective public service delivery, grassroots development, and improving the quality of life. 

This fellowship program will support community journalists with grants, capacity development and tools to produce in-depth data-driven stories that are investigative in nature on issues affecting communities in different parts of the country.
