The journey to the north started from south-west; heading to cover for the county – a mass vaccination exercise. We, a communication team of three, were tasked to document it in written, photography and audio-visual forms. These three forms had to tell one story – how the exercise improved their livelihood.
As a journalist, I know three different people/teams assigned to cover the one story will mean three different angles to the same story. To limit this, we did the following
- Identity the primary question to answer. How will this mass vaccination exercise improve your livelihood as a pastoralist?
- In the field, work independently. Be involved in each other’s work, however hold the feedback until the final draft is shared back in the office.
- Share for feedback to improve the drafts before submission
