A dozen students from Indiana University's School of Journalism recently returned from Kenya, where they and their professor reported on the African continent's continuing HIV/AIDS epidemic and learned about the Kenyan culture by partnering with Moi University students.
Since 2000, Jim Kelly, an associate professor of journalism, has organized reporting workshops in South Asia and Africa for working journalists covering social issues such as HIV/AIDS. This summer and for the second year, Kelly took a class of IU students to Eldoret, Kenya, home to the IU-Kenya Partnership.
The students have published their reporting online and hope their articles and photographs draw worldwide attention to the issue.
Students in the advanced reporting class arrived in Eldoret on May 21 and soon thereafter were paired with 12 communications students from Moi University. The two-person reporting teams spent the next two weeks collecting interviews, recording audio and video and making photographs.
