IWPR has played a leading role in the professionalization of the media within Afghanistan – establishing a vital leadership cadre of local media professionals throughout the country and across dozens of media institutions to assist in creating and sustaining vibrant and responsible journalism as a central pillar of public debate and accountability. Launching our work in 2002, IWPR established Pajhwok, the nation’s first independent news agency. IWPR’s current focus in Afghanistan is on strengthening in-depth reporting through the creation of a network of media centers of excellence across the country.
