ANF March Newsletter

We celebrated International Women’s Day with a Media Grant callout aimed exclusively at women and women-led media organisations in Africa and the diaspora. Women are a big demographic in terms of numbers, but their voices are missing in the media, and we want to change that. This grant is for journalists, podcasters, TikTokers, bloggers, and vloggers; and for media organisations that amplify women in media.

Arts and creativity are one of 35 trends journalists can use to write about business in Africa.
