The Ghana office of Dubawa, an independent and non-partisan transnational fact-checking platform and a project of the Premium Times Centre for Investigative Journalism (PTCIJ) has announced that it is accepting applications from students in tertiary institutions across Ghana to its Campus Fact-checking Project.
Dubawa says that the project is aimed at extending the “culture of truth-telling in the information ecosystem to tertiary institutions by training and equipping journalism students with the necessary skills to contribute to fact-checking and promote a culture of truth and accuracy in public discourse.”
Participants at this year’s Campus Fact-Checking project are expected to gain hands-on experience in fact-checking and by extension, journalism at the end of the programme.
