Training Journalists

We are in the process of putting in place a calendar of coaching programmes for journalists for the next year. Over the last couple of years we have conducted training in Meghalaya and Kashmir.

In Meghalaya we have coached the newsroom at The Shillong Times. Also, we have done a workshop in association with the government of Meghalaya for journalists.

In Kashmir, we have done work with Panos South Asia by sharing faculty for coaching senior students of journalism at the University of Kashmir. The focus at these workshops was urban affairs reporting.

We welcome suggestions from journalists as we formulate the calendar for next year. If you want us to cover specific areas or skills, please do send a note to
