Journalism Foundation in Southeast Asia
IJF has been active in Cambodia since 2001.
IJF joined the Policy Project (an organzation funded by
USAID), UNESCO and the National AIDS Authority in publishing an HIV/AIDS Media Guide.
It also designed and ran the first training program for journalists introducing the
guide. (Please see home page for link to the English version of the Guide.)
History: IJF began work in Cambodia by offering the International Workshop in
Advanced Journalism at the Royal University of Phnom Penh to working journalists from
Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar and Vietnam. The program included three months of intensive
English and journalism training, and was offered by IJF ten times.
Classes varied to accomodate the interests and talents of the participants. In
November of 2003, the class produced an 8-page newspaper on the garment industry.
