Writing for Our Lives is a publication that documents best practices from Maisha Yetu, whose defining feature has been continuous in-house mentoring and training on health care reporting in six African media houses over a two-year period. The book also documents the successes and problems encountered by the project in the six Centers of Excellence. It includes a narrative of how the project developed in each center and also added snapshots of several journalists and the stories they developed using tips learned from Maisha Yetu.
