I take great pleasure in inviting you to this blog, which is dedicated to a Tanzania Media Fund Fellowship for the year 2010, involving four young journalists working on projects of their own choice. Finnigan (in Lindi), Salome (in Morogoro), Erick (in Kigoma) and Orton (in Shinyanga) will utilize this space to share with you their experiences as they carry out their investigations, affording you a peep into aspects of rural Tanzania.
Though each one of them has chosen a particular topic for which a grant has been made by TMF, they will not be constrained to write exclusively on those topics; rather, it is hoped that they will allow themselves the leisure of looking at rural lives and livelihoods in general, observing and recording what they come across in their work.
It is my hope that they will educate us while at the same time entertaining us, and that through their eyes and pens we will be able to live a little of the rural story that is all too often ignored by town dwellers. If you find any of the stories interesting please share it with your colleagues via Twitter, Facebook or G-Buzz. You can also comment on any story at the bottom provided space.
It would be remiss of me not to thank Jamii Forums for their acceptance to host this blog and as well as for all the technical backstopping they have provided for the Fellow and their mentors, Fausta Musokwa and myself.
Welcome, and enjoy!
TMF Fellowship 2010
