The @Verdade newspaper in Mozambique has a team much larger than its newsroom, including a distribution team that delivers the paper to outer Maputo, to the unpaved neighborhoods where most people live. Recently, the newspaper has been doing some training on citizen reporting via mobile with the distribution team, its “eyes and ears” around town. Janet Gunter used this opportunity to do a baseline assessment of mobile ownership to determine needs for budding citizen reporters. The result she thought could be interesting to a wider audience. Here is a sampling.
Names have been changed, but everything else is based on Janet's interviews and observation.
