Zimbabwe Journalism Educators Network launches in June

Organisers are excited to announce the launch of the Zimbabwe Journalism Educators Network (ZIJEN) on 14 June 2024 at Great Zimbabwe University. The launch of the network stands as a significant milestone in advancing journalism education in the country.

ZIJEN is an outcome of the collaboration between Fojo Media Institute and Great Zimbabwe University (GZU), the National University of Science and Technology, and Harare Polytechnic. This partnership, which began in May 2023, is part of Fojo’s Journalism Education Programme funded by Sida.

The event will be hosted by Golden Maunganidze from GZU  with invitations having been sent out to all universities training journalism and media studies in Zimbabwe, media outlets, relevant government ministries, and members of the donor community.
