Seeing the World Through New Eyes Fellowship

The Seeing the World Through New Eyes Fellowship was a programme funded by CIDA which ran from 2005–2009.

Kudos to Vancouver Sun columnist Don Cayo who gave of his time and energy as project manager of this program. Don was instrumental in its success and we all owe him our thanks for his vision and support, not to mention the hours he donated to training, organizing and accompanying the receipients.

The Jack Webster Foundation is very appreciative of the five years of funding received from CIDA to send young or new BC journalists to the following developing countries:

2005 Malawi and Tanzania
2006 Cambodia and Viet Nam
2007 Mozambique and Rwanda
2008 Honduras and Peru
2009 Uganda and Zambia


We are also extremely proud of the the twenty-five journalists who received the fellowships. Each was either in his/her first five years of journalism or under age 30.
