Sixteen district correspondents hailing from Chanigoth and Ushsharif areas received CJA-supported Basic Journalism Training Manuals during a seminar entitled “Bahali-e-Soba Bahawalpur Hamari Manzil”, held at Canal Rest House in the rural centre of Chani Goth.
Among those who addressed the journalists during the seminar were Emir of Bahawalpur Nawab Salahuddin Abbasi; Ehsan Ahmed Sehar, president of Rural Media Networks Pakistan; National Press Union General Secretary Mazhar Rasheed; Senior Journalist Ahmed Khan Babar; and community and business leaders from the region.
Emir Nawab Salahuddin Abbasi distributed CJA training manuals among the journalists and donated PKR 100,000 (£663) to Mian Saqib Bodla for the welfare of the journalists in the Tehsil Press Club Saddar Bahawalpur.
More CJA-supported manuals will be distributed at an RMNP safety training workshop scheduled for April 13-14 in Khairpur Tamewali. That workshop will include two sessions on basic journalism as well as the safety training component.
