New student newspaper in Rwanda with support from Fojo

The first ever issue of the student newspaper Kaminuza Star has been printed!

2000 copies arrived at School of Journalism and Communication (SJC) in Kigali, Rwanda in the end of April.

“I am so proud of the wonderful journalist students at SJC!”, says Festus Ndungutse.

He manages the layout, design and web version of the newspaper, and is now very happy.

“The students are shaping the future of journalism in Rwanda.”

With the support from Fojo and the mediahouse New Times, Kaminuza Star and the website will give the students opportunity to practice hands-on journalism and to learn these skills such as photo journalism, camera shooting, video editing, newspaper design.
