We trust

the power of community. Each one of us has the power to break the chain of hate. We empower communities and the humans who make them, through capacity building and co-creation against information poisoning.

Safe Digital Research Fellowship

Safe Digital Research Fellowship is a multi-phase capacity building and co-creation fellowship that teaches concepts of media literacy, data analysis, digital resiliency, hate speech concepts, and the science of trust building. In 2021, we selected 64 fellows from diverse backgrounds like journalism, development practice, technology, fact-checking, academic research, and more. In the second phase, 26 fellows were selected for training on research methods. The fellowship experience is also teaching us how to build capacity and co-create in the most meaningful ways.
