SIRI Individual Application

The WAN-IFRA Women in News Social Impact Reporting Initiative was launched in 2020 to facilitate social impact reporting; bringing the stories of marginalised and vulnerable communities to the mainstream, and helping to bring news and information to these underserved audiences.

Individuals may apply for reporting assignments.

While we will assess each application individually on its merits, you may apply as an ‘individual’ if any of the below conditions apply:

– You are not currently receiving a salary from a media organisation
– You have been made to take unpaid leave for an extended period
– You have been made to take a salary cut of 50% or more for an extended period
– You are a correspondent who has seen a work contract cancelled or reduced due to COVID-19

You may not apply if you are currently employed on a full-time basis, or have a full-time reporting contract in place.

At this time only applications from Sub-Saharan Africa countries in which WIN is active will be considered including Botswana, Kenya, Malawi, Rwanda, Somalia, South Sudan, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia, Zimbabwe.

Project period for assignments should be completed within 8 weeks.
