2024 HumAngle Accountability Fellowship Program

The HumAngle Accountability Fellowship is a merit-based professional programme that prepares young people at the start of their careers to develop self-designed projects around accountability in the security and humanitarian sectors, climate security, education, sexual and gender-based violence, and transitional justice. It enables the fellows to make informed career choices and cultivate emerging leaders and change-makers.

The HumAngle Foundation manages the fellowship programme through a merit-based and competitive application process. The programme aims to identify exceptional young men and women passionate about professionally implementing and advancing their self-designed projects.

The fellowship is seeking nine (9) young, passionate individuals from these areas to undergo a 6-month programme with HumAngle. Fellows must be interested in either investigation and storytelling, advocacy at the grassroots, and conducting ground-breaking research or all of the above. They will select fellows from all senatorial districts in the three states. The fellows will undergo training in the following thematic focus areas:

  • Accountability and whistleblowing at the grassroots level.
  • Tracking of funding activities in the humanitarian and security sectors.
  • The prevalence of Sexual and Gender-Based Violence (SGBV) and how to track and report cases.
  • The impact of climate change on vulnerable populations and mitigation efforts.
  • Tracking and reporting access to education.
  • Transitional justice in peacebuilding.

The fellows will also double as Investigative Champions. They will go through an intense mentorship programme virtually and physically in their respective state capitals and be equipped with the knowledge and skills to begin implementing their self-designed projects.

The fellowship programme runs twice a year, each cohort for six months.

Founded in March 2020, HumAngle is a niche media platform committed to insightful and objective coverage of Africa’s conflict, humanitarian, and development issues. Over the years, insecurity has become one of the chief drivers of mass mortality and instability in the region. Yet, it has attracted no dedicated coverage from the media. HumAngle was established to fill this vacuum.

Their primary duty is to investigate, analyse, and report conflict issues in a sensitive, in-depth, and human-centred manner. They paint accurate pictures of crises and how they affect different communities and demographics. They hold the government to account on its responsibility of protecting lives and properties.
