Description of the event: 
GroundUp journalists are reporting stories and making documentaries about life in South Africa's townships. We've run social justice stories exposing corruption at Home Affairs, failures of policing,  the lack of street lighting in Khayelitsha, the closure of a soup kitchen in Somerset West and the illegal sale of formula milk. We've also run stories that show the upside of township life: Khayelitsha's first coffee shop, bustling small businesses, great sporting events and schools that are doing amazing things with few resources. At our launch, we'll tell you about some of our upcoming projects and ideas to grow GroundUp into a countrywide high quality source of community news. You can meet our journalists and watch a very short documentary showing their work. GroundUp is an important media initiative that is holding local councillors to account and putting township life, both its challenges and successes, into the news. Don't miss our launch. It will be fun and informative.
