Support amaB. Support democracy. Amabhungane
AmaBhungane develops investigative journalism by imparting investigative skills to others in the media through fellowships and extramural transfers. Fellows join us from across Southern Africa, where we also encourage the establishment of further investigative centres.

Support amaBhungane

Working journalists from any media outlet (or any other suitably qualified candidates) join amaBhungane, usually for a three-month period. By working with our staff they are given the opportunity to hone their investigative skills.

Media houses are encouraged to second employees for fellowships. We can usually offer a stipend to successful candidates.

Our more than 50 fellowship alumni across the region are making their mark and have already formed two partner centres, the  Ink Centre for Investigative Journalism (in Botswana), the Centre for Investigative Journalism Malawi, and an investigative unit based at The Namibian.
