ARTICLE 19 and Fahamu are offering a distance learning course aimed at equipping African activists with the tools to campaign on access to information.

The seven-week course will be held from 15 November to 15 December 2004 and examine why access to information is important, what an access to information law should contain and how one can campaign in countries that need them.

Six weeks are spent working through a specially designed interactive CD-ROM, completing exercises and discussing the issues by email with other course participants. An online course tutor will guide participants through the course. In the final week, participants will work on an assignment that will involve designing a campaign plan in a country.

There are 15 fully sponsored places available on the course. Every participant who successfully completes the course will be awarded a certificate from Article 19 and Fahamu. Applicants should send a one page summary CV, with a 500-word letter explaining why they should be selected for this course. Applications should be sent to [email protected]

Application forms can be downloaded from the Fahamu website:
