The baton is passed from hand to hand, signifying hope and human perseverance to spread peace and endurance to the Syrian people. To amplify the voices of Syrian refugees and what they are going through; that was the mission of the Voice citizen journalists who dedicated their time and efforts for this cause.
A group of our 10 citizen journalists completed their training where throughout the past two months they played an important role in their communities and will continue to do so long after. During the graduation, the women thanked the ARDD-Legal Aid team for their efforts and the skills that they have now acquired. The citizen journalists applied those skills to tell the human stories of refugees showcasing their suffering as well their hopes and aspirations for the future.
Citizen journalist, Rima, spoke for the group and expressed the change that they experienced and their wish to keep on writing and having their stories published to tell the Syrian refugee story.
ARDD-Legal Aid has trained 25 women through the Voice project on citizen journalism skills.
