MEKK-member Marte Høiby has together with war correspondent and safety trainer Abeer Saady conducted a training in safety for journalists and students at Makerere University in Uganda.
The focus of the two day training was on risk management, conflict reporting, situation awareness, topical issues in the region and ethical issues – with many examples and exercises.
Dominic Kango Amos from South Sudan was the local assistant during the training. The 20 participants were journalist students from different levels, as well as journalist from local media.
The participants were enthusiastic in their feedback – most of them rated the training as excellent, and some even wrote that they will be able to train journalists now.
