Grants Winners Announced

We are thrilled to announce that Regina Zoneziwoh from Cameroon and Shanoor Seervai from India have each won $1,000 in our humanitarian reporting contest.

Regina’s project, ‘know herStory,’ will narrate 15 personal and unique stories of grassroots women leaders involved in community mobilization, HIV/AIDS, peace building, social justice, and human rights advocacy in Cameroon. Shanoor will document the lives of sexworkers in Mumbai, India to tell the stories of their lives with a particular focus on the relationships the women have with their children.

Our mission at DAWNS is support compelling storytelling about issues that do not always make the mainstream news, but are of vital global importance. Our ultimate goal is to fund many, many projects like Regina’s and Shanoor’s.

To do that we need you.
