Karachi and Islamabad, Pakistan – Joined Rising Voices in 2014
Pakistan is a country that can often be unfairly portrayed in the international mainstream media. With one of the existing narratives focusing on security issues and extremism, there is a thirst for alternative news.
A new project called Jalaibi seeks to explore and showcase other aspects of Pakistani society such as the arts, culture, literature, food, and other lifestyle stories.
Through workshops in Karachi and Islamabad, the Jalaibi team is engaging participants from underrepresented sectors of society training them how to contribute news, photos, and videos to the news blog site to show the “sweeter side” of Pakistan.
