ICFJ's reporting trip to #Uganda kicked off yesterday in #Kampala. The goal of the visit is to learn more about Early Childhood Development programs that are supported by the government and UNICEF Uganda. The group has met with several experts on the subject and will learn from many more over the course of the next week.
The impactAFRICA winners began their 10-day study tour this week in Washington, D.C. The group made stops at the Washington Post, NPR, VOX and Bono’s ONE Foundation.

Their last stop is New York, where they will meet with editors and digital/data experts at the New York Times, ProPublica, the Tow Center and Buzzfeed.
