Plan Malawi Challenges Journalists to Report More on Children, Women as it Introduces Media Awards

Date:

Plan International Malawi and the Media Institute for Southern Africa – MISA Malawi Chapter have signed a 3 year pack where the former will sponsor Media Awards for high impact stories on girl child and women’s rights.
Speaking during a press briefing in Lilongwe, Country Director for Plan International Phoebe Kasoga said the initiative challenges journalists to report more on issues of child and women rights.
“Media is a tool for mass advocacy. We hope with the awards, the media will give much more attention to such issues, thereby attracting appropriate action from different stakeholders,” said Kasoga.
“We recognise the great work journalists do in covering issues to do with children, girls and women. The awards will ignite more passion towards these issues among journalists,” added Teresa Ndanga, MISA Malawi chairperson.
The awards will cover online, print and electronic categories. A winner in each category will pocket half a million kwacha.
