The ‘Innovative Tools to Enhance the Monitoring of Women’s Rights in Provincial Afghanistan’ project aims to improve provincial human rights monitoring by: i) enabling Afghan women-focused human rights organizations/institutions to use innovative media technology for monitoring, tracking and advocacy around rights violations including sexual and gender base violence (SGBV) cases and ii) to use radio programming and journalism training to create a more conducive environment for the work of organizations and to inform women about their rights and how to report violations. It is implemented by Internews, and funded by the US Department of State.
The project objectives are to significantly improve and increase the coverage of SGBV related issues in the Afghan media by strengthening the ability of journalists to report accurately and in a sensitive way.Nai (an Afghan organization that provides extensive journalism training) has been awarded a grant under the project to develop a training module for SGBV reporting and will conduct trainings for journalists from provincial Afghanistan. The training module will be incorporated into Nai’s human rights training curriculum.
The project has conducted a media assessment which included a review of Nai’s existing human rights training manual and made recommendations for revisions of this curriculum to include training materials on SGBV reporting. Nai will train at least 60 journalists and will also implement a mentoring phase during which the journalist trainees will produce stories dealing with women’s human rights violations and sexual and gender based violence.
To develop the training module on SGBV reporting, Nai is looking to hire a Journalism Training Consultant with the following scope of work.
