Alfred Sirleaf has funded The Daily Talk for the last 11 years out of his personal savings. He does not own a computer, and must pay for internet access at an internet cafe to research international news stories. His reporters are volunteers, and he pays for their cell phone minutes and text messages used to relay news stories to him. I am covering my expenses in Liberia through the generosity of several grants from Yale University, ensuring that I place no financial burden on Sirleaf and can help him purchase supplies to establish several more blackboard news outlets. I will also be helping him research and apply for grants to operate and expand The Daily Talk.
To help maintain The Daily Talk as a free, accessible source of news for Liberians, please consider donating through Paypal HERE. You may also donate money by personal check. Please make checks payable to Jessica Shor, and mail them to:
