Our training programs have taught valuable skills to more than 500 journalists and citizen journalists across Syria, Jordan, Egypt, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Bahrain, Sudan, Morocco, and Algeria. Our trainees capitalized on the experience and were able to build new projects in many countries. We remain in contact with our trainees, who have gone on to work in the fields of media and non-profit development. We currently guide citizen journalists through the implementation of digital media tools, improved storytelling, and data-driven findings


We assist journalists in the US and Europe to establish contacts and provide sensitive information to representatives within the MENA Region. We also work with students who are enrolled in journalism schools across the US and conduct research on terrorist groups, refugees, migration, and democracy in the Arab world.
