journalists' Initiative"" Association" Charity Profile
Kharkov “Journalists’ Initiative” Association celebrated its 10 year anniversary in 2004. The organization was founded by twenty Kharkov media representatives willing to invest their time and energy into the search of ways to address the vital issues for the establishment of new media environment.
Nowadays, apart from media representatives from all over Ukraine, JIA’s trainings, “roundtables” and analytical programmes involve foreign experts as well. There has also been an update in the initially set objectives. Our goal today is to facilitate the structuring of media environment and promote the establishment of its self-regulation mechanisms.
Journalists Initiative is a non-profit, non-state organization, living from membership fees. Its initiatives are supported by oversea donors. The JIA has been lately working in partnership with the European Journalism Centre (?aastricht, the Netherlands). Apart from that, we are currently developing as a media-centre for the Eastern Ukraine.
