IWPR's Open Minds project in Pakistan seeks to engage youth in public discussion and debate. It works in 42 state schools and madrassas across the country's troubled areas – Northwest Frontier Province (including Swat Valley), Karachi and the Federally Administered Tribal Areas – training some 4,000 secondary school students, both boys and girls, in basic journalism and discussion skills. The project's young trainees have published a number of articles in Pakistani newspapers and a group in the remote northern area of Chitral has launched a radio show with all reports recorded by student trainees.
