In 2011, ALIN launched an initiative aimed at promoting community journalism in Ng'arua Maarifa centre. It involves training young people in basic journalism skills such as photojournalism; news writing, editing and interviewing in Ng'arua.
The trainees become community-based reporters or citizen journalists. Through a community journalism blog: http://laikipiaruralvoices.blogspot.com/ the community reporters post their stories on any issue of importance to the local community ensuring that these issues get highlighted and in a number of cases acted upon by concerned authorities.
Please visit the blog to read interesting stories.
