Meet #IWMFfellows. “ I am drawn to characters and places, like the electrician who was shot while trying to come home to avoid a riot during Uganda’s elections that I reported on for Newsweek. My writing often focuses on underdogs who are striving to be something more than what their societies and circumstances allow them to be. It is only through human narratives that we can make sense of the positive and negative currents shaping our world”. – @clairmacd
#IWMFfellows were on the ground in Rwanda, DRC and Uganda earlier this month reporting as part of the #IWMF African Great Lakes Reporting Initiative. For more dispatches from the field follow our tumblr, http://iwmfontheground.tumblr.com.
