Pakistan

Since 2003, Internews has trained more than 3000 working Pakistani journalists and students, built the capacity of over two dozen radio stations across the country, and worked with universities and press clubs to support young journalists.

In the country’s conflict-prone areas, Internews has undertaken a series of activities designed to improve reporting capacity and enhance the ability of journalists to work safely, encourage peaceful development, and empower progressive voices. With National Geographic, Internews hosted in both Islamabad and Washington, D.C. the "Pakistan Through Our Eyes” exhibit, displaying the work of 17 FATA youth who developed their skills during photojournalism camps.

Much of Internews’ work in Pakistan has aimed to improve access to information following humanitarian disasters: In October 2005, Internews successfully advocated for emergency broadcast licenses for the country’s earthquake ravaged regions; in 2010, it responded to the catastrophic floods that swept through Pakistan by producing essential humanitarian information radio programs.
