SJC NEWS, a TV-news bulletin made by 140 students at School of Journalism and Communication (SJC), at the University of Rwanda. The bulletin was made by the 2nd year class, as the final of the course “TV Production Skills”. It is made partly in English and partly in Kinyarwanda.

News anchors: Odille Ukwishatse and Abraham Uwimana.
Camera operators: Vivienne Irabizi, Madina Uwlcyeza and Diedonne Manirakiza.
Instructors: Margaret Jjuuko, Felix Larnö and Daniel Jonsson.

The Fojo project at SJC aims to build capacity and strengthen education and training. Every semester Fojo sends 5-10 experienced Swedish journalists as volunteers to SJC. The volunteers provide practical training and personal feedback to students and lecturers, while at the same time they help students understand media’s social, economic and political role in a democracy and make sure they are able to conduct professional journalism in an evolving media landscape. In this course the volunteers were Felix Larnö and Daniel Jonsson.
