With this award, the Centre is strengthening the capacity of journalists to investigate and report on budgetary and procurement processes in the country. The Centre is collaborating with the Public Private Development Centre, an On Nigeria grantee, to train and mentor 30 journalists on investigative journalism techniques, data use, and budget and procurement tracking and monitoring. The organization is also providing funding for journalists to conduct in-depth field investigations. The project contributes to expanding the network of investigative journalists and promoting the culture of investigative work in Nigeria's media. The Centre is coordinating with other Foundation grantees to implement the project.
