The Thomson Reuters Foundation is organizing an online training program that will provide a space for journalists in a number of countries to converge virtually to train, share knowledge, attend expert sessions, and build networking among colleagues from different countries of the region, ensuring that they stay and their newsrooms are always aware of the most important news of this year.
Journalists will gain knowledge and information related to the pandemic, share advice and ideas about their different contexts, master new digital skills, and have access to policy makers and influential officials to obtain exclusive information and story ideas to help them cover the impact of the new Corona virus in their countries in a deeper, more enlightened level.
Journalists will have the opportunity to apply for another two-month mentoring program after the end of the training program that includes providing a grant to produce a journal article that will later be published in their media.
