Every year, the full-time (career-entry) Honours in Journalism class at Wits University undertakes an in-depth research project which allows the students to put into practice their newly-acquired journalism skills under the supervision of a group of mentors.

The students were given a month to complete the project: two weeks to find, research and write up a 2000-word feature in consultation with their group mentors, and another two weeks to compile the multimedia elements.

The group of 17 was divided into four groups and each group was assigned a mentor. Meet the team here.
