Why fundraise for contributors?
We are a small business in an intensive capital investment industry and Watchdog Uganda seeks financial support wherever we can get it.
Our affordable advertising rates bring is some revenue but members of the public who support our work help us pay more attention to reporting professionally from our communities and helping our countrywide contributors be well facilitated to do a good job.
How does it work?
Readers contribute money the Writers’ Fund and we spend that money for our online infrastructure that enables us connect communities to reporters to cover important communities and topics and the vice versa.
