During Spring Break 2014 Dr. David Sanders and Prof. Steve McCarthy traveled to Malawi, Africa on a reporting trip with Students from Montclair State University. For the first time, an all female crew of 5 TVDM Majors produced feature pieces from the region. In collaboration with the World Food Program, who helped book transportation and hotels, students worked on three different stories about helping Malawi become self-sustaining in the years to come.
In addition students worked on a story with MSNBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell. Mr. O’Donnell has teamed up with UNICEF to raise money to buy desks for school children in Malawi.
