For refugees, by refugees
Central to the camp are refugees: fellow humans who have endured trials beyond the experience of most people, perhaps even beyond imagination.
The Road Media project started in 2014 through the publication of a monthly magazine called The Road. The project started as an initiative to give a voice to Syrian refugees in the Za’atari camp in Jordan and to provide them with training opportunities in journalism. Two years later, IN TRANSIT was added to provide visual support. Participants learn visual storytelling, make short documentaries and share the life of refugees to the world.
The enrollment of refugees from all project benchmarks is one of the essential components of our approach. Since 2014, over 150 young male and female volunteers received lectures and training by professional journalists and were trained in all aspect of journalistic work.
“The world could benefit from hearing those stories directly from the people living in the camp.”
