The Great Rift Valley Lodge, Naivasha, Kenya
January 25-30, 2019


A huge thanks to all the 74 wonderful ladies that have applied to the bootcamp. It was real a pleasure to review every single body of work. We are incredibly happy with the amount of applications that we received, it exceeded our expectations and demonstrates the need for these types of initiatives in the region. Unfortunately, we only have a limited amount of spots, but to all of you who we won’t have the chance to meet this time, keep on being bold. We encourage you to keep applying for future opportunities.

The International Women’s Media Foundation (IWMF), WAN-IFRA Women in News (WIN) and Native are thrilled to announce the 15 participants that will join the media leadership bootcamp in Naivasha, Kenya:

Rehab Eldalil (Egypt), Yagazie Emezi (Nigeria), Tracy Keza (Rwanda), Lebohang Kganye (South Africa), Heba Khamis (Egypt), Gulshan Khan (South Africa), Tendai Marima (Zimbabwe), Kefilwe Monosi (Botswana), Monicah Mwangi (Kenya), Lee-Ann Olwage (South Africa) , Miora Rajaonary(Madagascar), Samantha Reinders (South Africa), Btihal Remli (Morocco), Molebogeng Thoka (South Africa) and Etinosa Yvonne (Nigeria).


Runner’s up: 

1. Esther Aluda

2. Sarah Kadesa
 

During the four-day creative lab, participants will develop their skills to create, edit and narrate their visual stories successfully. Together, we will identify sexism and colonialism in photography and will learn from each other to break away from established and colonial gazes and reclaim spaces that are not representative of us.

The lab will feature local photographic talent and includes a security training. We will touch on topics such as self-awareness, self-care and breathing techniques to cope with stress and trauma.

Two main elements will be central: Inspiration––taking information in–– and Action––thinking critically, collaborating, editing and developing your own work on the spot).


Leading the Lab: 

Laura Beltrán Villamizar (NPR/Native)

Ugandan female photographer Sarah Waiswa 

Security trainer Allison Baskerville 

Shannon Elder: lab assistant and assistant editor for Native.


The complete program will be send to each of the participants individually. Please note the agenda is subject to change.
