This January the Africa Digital Media Academy conducted its first “All Girls Intake,” in an effort to build capacity and encourage gender equality in the media and entertainment industries.
After an intensive three-week evaluation period, twenty girls were selected out of an original intake of 40 to undergo a fourteen-month training program acquiring skills in a range of fundamental courses including of Photography, Video Production and Storytelling for Multimedia.
This initiative is a partnership between the Imbuto Foundation and the Africa Digital Media Academy with the aim of giving more women digital literacy skills, access to equal opportunity in the media industry and the ability to tell their own stories.
