SIRI Organisation 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 mainstream media to these underserved audiences.

Media outlets in print, digital or radio may apply for short-term grants to support their efforts to bring timely and accurate information to their audiences. Industry associations that are coordinating efforts on the ground on behalf of the media industry may also apply.

Priority will be given to any media organisation or media-related industry association that aims to deliver news and information to vulnerable or under-represented communities and the stories of vulnerable or under-represented communities to mainstream society. Community and local media organisations will also be given priority.

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

The current call for applications is now closed.
