aKoma is delighted to invite applications for the Amplify II, the second cohort of our Fellowship for Content Creators and Storytellers in Africa.
Amplify provides Fellows in the capital cities of Rwanda, Nigeria, Kenya and Ghana (added in 2017) a brew of online, face to face, and field instruction in written, visual, audio, and photography content creation, delivered by a thoughtfully curated group of subject matter experts in those fields.
For the duration of the program, each Fellow is required to create and submit a content post on aKoma every week. at the end of each month, the country cohort will complete an assigned project as a team.
Each week, fellows meet virtually with a content SME who instructs them in topics related to content creation, storytelling, media careers, team collaboration, and project management. the aKoma team also provides additional instruction and guest speakers.
