Hello everyone from Morocco!
On all of our projects and programs we partner an American with his or her in-country counterpart. They work together on the same under-reported story, collaborating and sharing responsibilities. This is real reciprocity, real partnership, two people from different countries and cultures caring passionately about accuracy, fairness and a story that needs to be told.
Our student journalists — in Morocco and South Africa — make many in-country friends. But working together is different. The connections one makes in true collaboration on a story that’s important to both partners — those connections last far after the end of the program.
These partners and their deep friendships give me hope for our future. Not just for journalism — but for our world.
Look for a powerful story from Joe and Soukaina involving medical care and human rights in Morocco.
They’re on it. Together.
With warmest regards,
