Fergal Browne was a recipient of the summer 2014 round of the Simon Cumbers Media Fund. Fergal traveled to Colombia to look at the difficult living conditions faced by displaced women in the capital. He explored issues such as health, safety, education, employment, and sexual exploitation in the light of the policies of Colombia’s political institutions; and how local government differs in political policy to that of the national goverment. Fergal’s project also focuses on the ways in which displaced women have empowered themselves in reaction to the situation they are faced with.
Fergal had a series of articles published in TheJournal.ie, from Saturday, 22nd November 2014 until Monday, 24th November 2014.
