Meet Carina

I'm Carina van Wyk, head of education and training at TRi Facts, Africa Check’s training, research and information unit.

More about Carina


I am responsible for organising and facilitating fact-checking training, training module and curriculum development, and growing the practice of fact-checking across the continent by managing the guidance and support Africa Check and TRi Facts provide to other African fact-checking organisations. You can contact me at [email protected] Being a former journalist, content producer and experienced media trainer, I am interested in encouraging the practice of fact-checking in newsrooms, but also among the general public, in order to fight the spread of false information. I am currently studying towards a master’s degree in journalism and media studies.

I work in partnership with Kweli. She will help you with administrative, technical and communications questions.
