BIRN Macedonia Receives USAID Funding

Posted on

BIRN Macedonia has signed a grant agreement with USAID in Macedonia for a 30-month project aimed at enhancing cooperation between civil society organisations and media and strengthening investigative journalism in the country.

BIRN Macedonia will implement the project in partnership with the Centre for Civil Communications, SCOOP Macedonia, KOD TV magazine and Koha daily newspaper.

In partnership with local media and NGOs, BIRN Macedonia will organise a series of events designed to bridge the gap between civil society organisations and media and foster valuable relationships between NGOs and journalists.

In addition, the project will award grants to journalists for investigative stories, offer mentorship and guidance to journalists in the editorial process and arrange publication for investigative stories on various issues in the country.

The project will run until June 2015.
