The topic “Journalism for truth and reconciliation in the Church and service to the people” is considered against the background of information gleaned from CAMECO’s project database, plus knowledge and experience amassed during CAMECO’s five decades of cooperation with various faith-based donors and partners in the media field.

Projects CAMECO receives for assessment refer to all types of media, and range from printing parish newsletters, to setting up a national radio network or establishing a pan-African news agency. The project applicant may be the Communications Office/Commission of a national or regional Bishop’s Conference, a diocese, a religious order/congregation, or a lay movement/association.
