Your contribution goes directly to programs and activities supporting peacebuilders like Tahseen in conflict zones around the world.
Tahseen Al-Zrikiny is a journalist from Diwaniyah, Iraq, who participated in the PeaceTech Lab’s first PeaceTech Exchange (PTX). After our 3-day intensive course on creating multi-media stories using the Storymaker app, Tahseen began reporting on the plight of local farmers.
Al-Zrikiny’s story, which was recorded, edited, and published entirely from his smartphone, won the United Press Unlimited award for the Best Story of 2013 “which would have remained untold without mobile storytelling.”
Support for the PeaceTech Lab makes this kind of essential training possible, giving voice to citizen journalists and other peacebuilders in conflict zones around the world.
