Launched by Michael R. Bloomberg in 2014, the Bloomberg Media Initiative Africa (BMIA) is designed to provide cross disciplinary education programs to strengthen business and economic journalism, convene African and international leaders to examine worldwide best practices in financial journalism, and improve access to information in order to advance transparency and accountability on the continent.
The initiative hosts major business journalism training programs across Africa, an annual Pan-Africa conference and a Community Media Fund to enhance citizens’ access to relevant information by strengthening community media and citizen journalism that enables the public to support policies and practices that drive inclusive economic and human development locally, regionally and nationally. The CMF’s makes disbursements to grantees in Kenya, Nigeria and South Africa.
This is an exciting time of continued growth for BMIA as it is expanding into new countries on the continent with financial journalism training, additional workshops and related programs planned for the forthcoming years.
