BRIEF DESCRIPTION OF INITIATIVE

Hashtag Our SA is a local project which aims to create a news network in all 11 South African languages, which will be created on mobile phones and Hashtag Our SA will also teach South African communities how to tell their own stories.HashtagOurStories has trained over 200 storytellers in 40 countries. The initiative’s goal is to train MOJO storytellers that can produce constructive, solutions-based stories and provide more diverse news coverage.

The African Civic Tech Atlas is a work in progress (and a labour of love) for us but we may miss some initiative that needs updating. If your initiative needs to be updated on the database, kindly follow the instructions on the “Update Your Initiative” tab.
