Refugees In Uganda Learn Journalism Skills To Share Their Stories
The refugees at Bidibidi camp were given smartphones and taught to identify story angles and edit.
World Vision Director of Public Engagement Laura Gemmell said the budding journalists covered stories such as the impact of COVID-19 on education, business and worship in the camp.
“There is also a brilliant story about some musicians who’ve put down tracks about social distancing and hygeine in a makeshift recording studio,” said Ms Gemmell.
“The songs are played at food distribution points to spread awareness of the virus.”
