Sahar Speaks has been named a winner of the Jim Bettinger News Innovation Fund at Stanford University.
“Around the world, JSK alumni are at the forefront of helping journalism improve how information reaches communities and how news organizations tell the stories of people whose voices often are not heard,” said Dawn Garcia, director of the JSK Fellowships. The initiative launched in 2016 in honor of longtime Director James Bettinger, who retired from the program after 27 years.
This funding will allow us to launch our third round, to take place sometime in the winter/spring of 2018, in Kabul. Selected alumnae will work on humanitarian-centered social video journalism in partnership with the Guardian's Global Development division.
