The Media Foundation for West Africa and Danish Association of Investigative Journalists hosted a seminar called “National seminar on the programme for African Investigative Reporting,” according to a news release on the Ghana government’s website.
The Media Foundation for West Africa lists its mission as “to promote, defend, protect, consolidate, and expand the fundamental freedoms of media and expression of citizens, communication professionals and organisations and human rights defenders in West Africa.”
At the seminar, Ghana Broadcasting Corporation’s radio director, Yaw Owusu Addo, called for the Ghana Journalists Association to unionize, to hold training workshops and “insist on a minimum standard of education for” journalists, according to the ISD article on the Ghana government’s website.
