Our partnership with Maharat Foundation

| By

As well as the Newsroom’s initial partnership with Raseef22, we have recently also started working with Maharat Foundation, an NGO based in Lebanon who “endeavour to defend the freedom of opinion & expression by developing the media sector, advocating for legal reforms & building capacities” (from their Twitter account). The Newsroom will be working with them on their coverage of the elections in May, but we have also recently benefited from Roula Mikhail’s experience as she delivered training for in February, enabling the students to plan their election coverage.


To find out more about Maharat’s work, you can go to their site, and of course watch this space for more news of our activity together. It is in developing these training and collaborative partnerships that we hope to offer partners experience of being involved in different types of relationships, whilst we also clearly benefit from their journalistic experience in furthering our own skills.
