Our society is expressed through journalism. It informs us about events in our communities, entertains us, and aids in our understanding of the world around us. Mobile phones are now more than ever playing a significant role in educating people and interacting with their environment.
Mobile phones, as opposed to other forms of media, have the unique ability to reach people at any given time and place, making them an essential tool for journalists and storytellers.
A group of aspiring journalists attended trainings for mobile storytelling commonly known as MOJO, an acronym for mobile journalism and youth participatory radio on September 15 and 16, 2022, at Nkumba University.
