The Interlink Academy and its long-time local partner Centre for Innovation and Technology (CITE) implement a comprehensive Media and Information Literacy project in Zimbabwe. The four-year project reaches out to numerous communities in Matabeland.
The project aims to empower the people in Bulawayo and Matabeleland North and South with essential media literacy skills. The project includes an in-depth training of multipliers which will become our future community leaders and teachers, as well as establish local media literacy hubs.
Our sources of information have become diverse. News, facts, speculations, opinions and lies are part of our media diet. How can we make sense of the information that we consume?
Through the MIL project, CITE and Interlink Academy, seek to help citizens in Matabeleland with knowledge and skills to navigate and act responsibly within the media world.
The core aim of the project is to equip information users to:
Access credible sources
Competently use social media
Participate in decision-making
Protect their data
