Description

The U.S. Mission to Pakistan is seeking to increase awareness of the U.S.-Pakistan partnership through reporting tours. This project aims to empower local rural broadcast and digital journalists and emerging social media influencers in Pakistan by enhancing their skills and creating a robust network of well-informed professionals. The project will train 120 local journalists and influencers from rural areas of Sindh and Balochistan, providing them with immersive experiences and firsthand insights into U.S. programs and assistance in Pakistan. The training will include both formal and informal tools, opportunities for collaboration, and in-person and virtual engagements. The project implementation period is 12 to 18 months, with a funding floor of $200,000 and a funding ceiling of $250,000. The ideal grantee will be a U.S. or Pakistan-based organization with offices or partner organizations in Pakistan. The project will have two components: training/workshops and reporting tours within Pakistan, including engagements with experts, policymakers, and community leaders. A written or broadcast deliverable will be due at the conclusion of the reporting tour. Both components of the project are expected to be completed within a maximum of 18 months.
