The Rozana Media Development Centre (RMD) is working, in cooperation with the Danish International Media Support (IMS), with Yemeni media organizations to develop Yemen’s humanitarian journalism, through direct training and long-term support.
In this training, the team of trainers at Rozana Foundation offers a summary of their expertise in press coverage of the humanitarian situation in Syria, as one of the most prominent areas of conflict since years, to support Yemeni media institutions and journalists in providing press content and media coverage of humanitarian issues, including individual humanitarian stories, and solutions journalism, with different modules and modes compatible with modern media platforms, through which radios reach the largest segment of the audience.
The training targets the experts and press teams in the Yemeni radio stations: The Yemen Times, Seiyun Radio, Al-Ittihadiya, Radio Lana, which are located in different regions of Yemen, and operate as community radios that aspire to improve the humanitarian situation of civilians in Yemen through the establishment of humanitarian journalism units prioritizing human journalism in the next phase.
Journalists and trainers Lina Al-Shawaf, Mais Katt, Loujain Haj Youssef, Mounir Al-Ayoubi, Mohsen Ibrahim and Tamam Al-Moubayed, with the support of Ahmed Jebali, will provide structured training, which is designed to meet the needs of each of the aforementioned radios separately.
The training will be adapted to suit the capabilities, needs and target audience of these Yemeni media establishments, in order to promote their editorial policies and journalistic code of ethics.
The training will also cover studying journalism and media institutions’ crisis response strategies, and the types, modes and topics of media content, as well as to the best practices related to field coverage and the safety of the radio team and correspondents.
The RMD professional trainers provide training services to establishments and individuals, including institutions and journalists in Syria, North Africa, Yemen, Libya and Iraq, in cooperation with leading Arab and international organizations that support free media in the Arab World.
