Internews launched its signature 200-hour data journalism certification program with a group of passionate, early career journalists from remote tribal areas of Pakistan. The Internews Data Journalism Certification Program was designed to produce a cadre of public-interest journalists who harness data to cover critical issues in neglected regions, an early experiment in bringing data journalism to local communities.

Stories produced on public interest topics that include government misspending of education funds, water being diverted from citizens to Chinese Belt and Road projects, and successes and failures in empowering women in government in Balochistan, FATA and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa have earned participants a host of regional and international recognition.
