Internews has been working in Pakistan since 2003, building the capacity of over two dozen radio stations and universities across Pakistan to improve the quantity and quality of information-based programming through residential training and mentoring programs, support to press clubs, investigative journalism immersion courses, and media law and station managers’ training. Internews has trained more than 1700 working journalists and journalism students in Pakistan and established the nation’s first university-based women’s broadcast media center and radio station and the first radio program by and about women.
In October 2005, Internews successfully advocated for emergency broadcast licenses for the earthquake-ravaged areas of North-West Frontier Province and Kashmir and, in 2010, responded to the catastrophic floods that swept through Pakistan by producing essential humanitarian issue radio programs.
Most recently, in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa and FATA (Federally Administered Tribal Areas), Internews is embarking on a series of infrastructure support activities and journalism trainings for university journalism departments, press clubs, unions of journalists and media outlets.
