African voices reach all corners of the world


With 108 journalists from some 34 African countries, the ‘Allstar’ journalists of the Twenty Ten project certainly do hail from all parts of Africa. That was certainly made clear when we all sat together in the training workshops, comparing notes from our respective regions of the world. But I don’t think that many comprehend quite how far around the globe these African voices are being amplified.
Africa Media Online, the organization responsible for the distribution of the content provided by the project’s journalists – including text, photography, audio and multimedia – works with dozens of international agencies who act as ‘resellers’, distributing content in their own territories and languages.
