Connecting Continents, a pilot project by Journalismfund.eu in collaboration with Oxfam Novib, distributed €100,000 to Sub-Saharan African journalists collaborating with European colleagues and vice versa (2015-2016).
In order to safeguard the independence of participating journalists and media, Journalismfund.eu operated as a firewall between Oxfam Novib, which provided the money for the grants, and the journalists who received it. Journalismfund.eu has year-long experience with similar types of funding through its European cross-border and its Flemish Fonds Pascal Decroos working grant programmes.
This project has ended which means that journalists can no longer apply for a grant.
