Completion of Community Journalism Training Program


On Sunday, we had the closing ceremony of the Community Journalism Program, which I have written about here. We had some community journalists, as well as many members of the communities in which USAID COMET II and NIA work. The turnout was “oversubscribed,” as one organizer put it, but the day went very well. We presented each of the nine pieces that were published or will be published, and discussed them with a panel, which included the NIA’s legal advisor, gender specialist Nadeen Spence, a youth activist and Rodje Malcolm of Jamaicans for Justice. And it seems another round of training will be underway at some point, as many new faces in the room expressed an interest in participating in learning how to be an investigative journalist.
