With the help of the Media Diversity Institute, young Egyptian journalists are making a mark in the country’s over-crowded media market by producing stories usually ignored by more well established reporters.  They look for marginalized individuals and communities believing ‘every person has a story to tell’, and are also convinced that every voice matters.

Over the last two months, 10 young reporters from different newspapers - including Al-Ahram daily and weekly, Watani, El-Dostor, El-Wafd, El-Massry El-Youm, El-Youm El-Sabei, and El-Osbou - took part in a training course organised by the Media Diversity Institute. During the course, they debated the reasons for inclusive reporting, the ethical issues around diversity coverage and produced the stories covering issues such as disability, women’s rights and refugees (the articles can be downloaded below).  The majority of the articles have already been published in the participating newspapers. More than 150 reporters applied to take part.  This is the second such training course provided by MDI in Egypt, supported by the UK Embassy in Cairo.
