Sibusiso Tshabalala for Groundup Articles 2

In 2012, Sibusiso was named as one of 10 Google Young Minds for 2012 internationally. Each year, Google searches for 10 students internationally who demonstrate strong leadership capabilities, an entrepreneurial drive and a commitment to social activism. In June 2012, Sibusiso was also named as one of South Africa’s Top 200 Young South Africans by the Mail and Guardian. Groundup is a community journalism project that values ethical reporting. It reports stories from South Africa's townships. Most of stories are about health --especially HIV, TB and sanitation--, education, women's rights and immigrant's rights. Township life in South Africa is underreported in the news; Groundup want to change that. It hopes its reporting will help address some of the problems of accountability and service delivery in our communities. Sometimes it covesr stories just because they're funny or interesting. At GroundUp we value high-quality, ethical journalism. We are independent and do not promote any political party. Our news stories are fact-checked before they are published. We try to write in plain language. We also solicit and publish opinion pieces. We prefer opinion pieces from people who work in working class areas on social justice issues and who can write eloquently about the problems they encounter.
