CTV News in Africa

CTV News and Journalists for Human Rights Working Together In Africa

Last year, CTV National News Chief Anchor and Senior Editor Lisa LaFlamme travelled to the Democratic Republic of Congo to work with Journalists For Human Rights (JHR), a Canadian-based media development organization that helps train reporters in the developing world.  In 2014, CTV News is sending three more of its journalists to Africa to work with JHR in countries where a free press is just emerging. 

For three weeks in February 2014, CTV Vancouver Managing Editor Ethan Faber was be in Sierra Leone, a country emerging from the darkness of a 10-year civil war.  We invite you to follow along as CTV and JHR join forces to help journalists tell their stories in some of the most challenging places on earth.
