The U.S. Embassy Public Affairs Section (PAS) in Dushanbe is soliciting proposals for English for Journalists Program from Tajikistan’s accredited schools, institutes, teacher training centers, universities, or non-profit organizations based in Tajikistan that focus on the priority areas specified below.

Applicants should pay close attention to the Public Affairs Section’s goals, priority program areas, and target audiences when developing their proposals.

Current Situation & Problem Statement:

Journalists in Tajikistan generally lack the ability to cover stories in English as the capacity of English language knowledge is low.
Due to this, most journalists are not able to access accurate sources of information that will allow them to recognize, respond to, and combat disinformation, misinformation, and propaganda in the news and on the internet.
Additionally, many journalists miss out on opportunities to learn skills in high quality field reporting through studying the most prestigious international sources of information, or adequately cover international stories.
Review of Past Projects

The U.S. Embassy in Dushanbe previously supported English for Journalists projects that trained hundreds of journalists and bloggers, which increased the professional skills of professional journalists; increased their ability to read and write stories in English, strengthened the investigative journalism skills of media professionals; and trained journalists on new techniques and approaches to make the transition to digital journalism.
