Liberia : MediaAid Foundation bags Ministry approval to operate Quaqua Journalism School in LIBERIA.

A local media NGO, MediaAid Foundation (MAF) has secured approval from the Ministry for Education to run a journalism school, which is named in honor of former Press Union of Liberia (PUL) President, Peter Quaqua.

It is stated that the Peter Quaqua Journalism Training School is dedicated at offering an intensive nine months certificate program including twenty seven major journalism courses to aspiring journalists across Liberia.

The establishment of the Peter Quaqua Journalism Training program is in response to the lack of an established journalism school in the country, said Richard Manuba, co-founder and program officer of MediaAid Foundation, There is no sustained training program for middle-level journalists, which continues to under-rate the local media.

He stated that the MediaAid Foundation, which operates from the YWCA Compound in Congo Town, will sustain excellence and seek to recruit and train high school graduates and university students.

The school has trained about 15 community radio journalists from the Southeast in radio voice-editing, he informed.
