I will Stand In

About the #IwillStandIn Media Campaign

#IWillStandIn is a not just a campaign to cushion the media industry. It is call to rescue the truth by keeping journalism alive.

Imagine a community of young journalists mobilizing their skills to STAND IN as a ‘reserve force’ for fellow journalists at the frontlines of the battle with the shock effects of COVID 19

COVID19 IS WAR!

You are not fighting it alone.

Consider Media Challenge Fellows a“STANDING RESERVE ARMY” for our media fraternity.

Envisioned Campaign Challenge

With Coronavirus a global pandemic now, the global economy is slowly shutting down with a lot of businesses closing operations and laying off workers. COVID19 has also created unprecedented conditions for societies around the world, destroying millions of livelihoods and creating uncertainty about the future. Job furloughs have not spared the media industry.

THE Envisioned PRACTICAL SOLUTION

We asked our community of young journalists; “Would you stand in as a reserve force journalist?”

We got an emphatic affirmation!

Meet our Reserve Force Journalists

This force is made up of MCI fellows and young journalists who have undergone our rigorous practical media training that envisions turning them into what we call “One-Man/Woman-Army Journalists. They are multi-skilled for multiplatform journalism.
