What is it like to be an African platform worker or seller in the age of Covid-19?
A small group of platform workers and sellers in Kenya, Nigeria, Ghana and Uganda will be sharing their experience dealing with Covid-19 through a 2 month video storytelling project. Trained in videography skills, and equipped with phones and ongoing narrative mentorship, individuals will be empowered to tell their own stories in their own voice.
When we present this work in early 2021, we will add some framing remarks linking it to the broader platform livelihoods framework. We will also update the online resource and literature review with additional studies about how Covid-19 is impacting livelihoods.
