Meet #IWMFfellows. “I’m drawn to counter-narratives and stories that empower those they portray. Reporting on Ugandan pop-culture and the different faces of Chinese influence in the country, we tried to provide nuance to stereotypes lingering in mainstream media, hopefully shattering some harmful cliches of what Africa is (and isn’t!) along the way”. – @kiimwall
#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.
